Yesterday, Ukie officially launched our 2016 esports whitepaper: Growing the UK as an esports hub at an event at Gfinity's London Arena.
The whitepaper has been written following months of consultation with the UK's esports community via Ukie's esports subgroup, and outlines eight recommendations for how industry and government can work together to make the UK a global leader in esports.
