Welcome to the homepage for the UFG, the first ever UK university fighting game league! Partnering with NSE and featuring multiple games, we aim to produce a competitive online environment for university students in the UK, to allow for the development of the scene and its players as a combined body. We also encourage content production, discussion, and a nationwide community of like-minded competitors. We will be using this page for all UFG related news, and to host the official league tables for each game of the season!

In 2018, we launched our Discord community (now over 550 members!), and began running online events for Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat, Smash Ultimate, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, Under Night In-Birth and more. At the beginning of 2019, we hosted our first multi-game Winter Season split, complete with prizes. We’ve since gone on to host many more Seasons of competition, fostering storylines and connections within the University Fighting Game Community.

2020 Winter Season

We’re back with a full Season of Fighting Games! For the start of this next academic year, we’ll be returning with our two mainstays of Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V, as well as welcoming Super Smash Bros. Melee into the mix! Come show us your moves in titles both old and new!
