Esports is a growth sector as part of the games and interactive entertainment industry and the tournament is a great opportunity for the next generation of aspiring digital professionals to experience it first-hand.
Playing in and producing esports tournaments develops many different skills as well as a sense of pride, and is a career pathway that can be hugely rewarding.
CEO of Ukie commented: “The schools tournament is a fantastic way to inspire and give confidence to young people, showing them that if they study the right creative and technology subjects, they will have valuable transferable skills needed by digital creative businesses in the UK now and in the future.”
