This tournament is open to women (cis and trans) and non-binary members of our community. After signing up please fill out this form for preferred pronouns and seeding.

Mixed university team signup
For the first time we will be allowing mixed university team signup for this event. Teams or individuals who do not have enough teammates at their own university may sign up using this form. Partial teams will be merged by NSE staff to form full teams. This will be done by prioritising maximum number of players and geographic locations of universities. For example if players are from London you will likely be put on a London based team. Deadline for mixed team signup is 9th March with teams announced on 10th of March.

Prizes

1st Place £100
2nd Place £50

In addition to other prizes this tournament awards British University Esports Championship Points. Mixed teams will split points among members based on team size. For example a team with 3 players from university A and 2 from university B. Team A earns 60% of points and University B 40%.
