The first few seasons of the British Esports Championships have concluded and our spring 2019 champions emerged triumphant at Insomnia Gaming Festival.

Now all eyes are looking towards the next tournaments and we can’t wait to get the ball rolling with Championships that are bigger and better than ever.

The next esports championships for schools and colleges will get underway from September 2019 and work has already begun on these. They are open to students aged 12+.

It’s looking like we will retain Rocket League, Overwatch and League of Legends as the three games available to compete in.

You can now register your interest in taking part here. This form is to register your interest in future seasons of the British Esports Championships, we will contact you when details of the next season are ready with more information on how to finalise your registration.

For more info on the Championships, check out our article on our most recent season here, view this downloadable guide for teachers and students and read our FAQs here.

Before registering, please note:

  • Only staff members/teachers can register for the British Esports Championships on behalf of their students in their respective school or college.
  • The default match day is Wednesdays. The default match time for schools is 15:45, whilst the default match time for colleges is 16:00. Though you are able to reschedule, this is at the discretion of your opponents, so if they are unable to, then the default day/time stands.

The entry fee for the British Esports Championships was £25 per school for the year of 2018/19, plus £5 per team, per game, per season. The fees for the 2019/20 season will be confirmed shortly.

For example if a school wanted to enter 1 Rocket League team for two seasons, this would be £35 (£25 for the entry fee, plus £5 for one team for two seasons.
