About Us

Welcome to the Northumbria University Page!

The Northumbria Vikings was born in 2018 after a number of unofficial efforts at Northumbria since around 2015.  The Society is now officially sanctioned and supported by the University directly and the societies goal is to bring all Esports players together under one banner.  We aim to offer the best competitive experience in Newcastle.  We have shared access to our own on-campus gaming lab where you can go and practice together with your team to improve or where you can play your live matches for the NSE all together in one environment.  We have facilities for teams to watch games back and analyse their performance to see where they could improve and we offer limited opportunities to those interested in casting our competitive games on our Twitch Channel.  Last year our varsity with Newcastle University made the front page on Twitch.

Last academic year we had members visit Insomnia 64 in Birmingham and the League of Legends Championship Korea in Seoul and the League of Legends European Championship in Berlin for the start of the Spring 2019 Split.   In 2020 we hosted the Red Bull Player One Heat for the North (League of Legends) and the winner went all the way to Brazil for the International final where he was runner up!

We have a club shirt (available from the Team Jerseys link on the left!) and we also have regular socials - everything from our Halloween Party night to food at the local Korean BBQ! 

 

Visit us and follow us on Facebook/Twitter/Twitch.Tv, join our Discord and chat to other freshers and prospective new members.
