NSE is the official body for university esports. It was established in partnership with British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS), the governing body for university sport. BUCS provide NSE with exclusive access to their higher education network and infrastructure.
NSE aims to create the best university esports experience worldwide by providing tournaments and digital community infrastructure; supporting the development of on-campus societies; and connecting student leaders with industry.
The British Esports Association is a not-for-profit organisation designed to support and promote esports in Britain, with a focus on the grassroots level.
The aim is not to push esports as a sport, or as a rival to traditional sport, but as a credible activity in its own right which can have positive cognitive and other benefits when done in moderation. Esports also promotes teamwork and communication, develops communities and provides jobs. See our careers advice section here.
Our three aims are to:
We aspire to be the most player-focused game company in the world. We were established in 2006 by a couple of entrepreneurial gamers who believe player-focused game development can result in awesome games. In 2009, we released our debut title, League of Legends, to critical and player acclaim. Over 100 million play every month.
We know players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.

As students we were frustrated with the lack of opportunities to express our interest in esports whilst at university, so back in 2010 we decided to change this. We wanted to provide everyone at university in the UK with the opportunity to:
- Represent their university at esports
- Meet likeminded people who share their passion for esports and have fantastic experience
- Help gain useful experience and skills from within the esports industry
We are the world's largest and oldest international eSports organization. We host eSports tournaments all over the globe.
At FACEIT our team is everything. The current team includes a bunch of latest-generation development warriors, some design jedis, a few lazy business guys and some gaming veterans. Our common passion for online games helped us becoming a close group of people that share this culture of “working hard and playing harder”. We had tons of fun building the company from scratch and never stopped.
Formed by gamers and with the backing of successful investors, Gfinity was created to help push eSports within the UK to a professional level, to raise awareness and to provide an arena for gamers to showcase their talent.
Gfinity was launched as a company in early 2013 and plans were immediately set in motion to deliver events and user experiences unlike any that had been seen in European eSports before it.
