Wednesday 10 November, London: British Esports is proud to announce that it will host the second annual Scottish College Cup in November 2021 in which teams from the British Esports Student Champs will be participating in a regional competition on Rocket League. 

British Esports has partnered with College Development Network (CDN) to help colleges create content and promote their esports brands within their institutions.

The aim of the event is to increase awareness of esports across Scotland’s college sector, in addition to providing opportunities to engage students with both competitive and academic esports.

The competition will require each college to register for the upcoming British Esports Student Champs season in January 2022. A college can submit one team of five players (three main players, and space for two substitutes if required) to the Rocket League competition wherein they will compete against one another to be crowned the Scottish College Cup 2021 Champions.

Kenji Lamb, Digital and Innovation Lead at CDN, said: 

“CDN is excited to be partnering once again with British Esports on Scotland’s inter-college esports championship. It will be great to watch the teams battling it out for the second time, to win the cup. 

“It’s not just the competition though, it’s everything that comes along with it: the gaming societies being formed; communities of students engaging with their institutions and each other; and the skills we pick up when we learn, work and play together.”

The Scottish College Cup will consist of a Group Stage that will run from 22nd November to 3rd December, followed by an Elimination (Playoffs) Stage that will last from 4th December to 5th December.

Registrations are now open for the event, and will close on Thursday 18th November. You can register online here and view the tournament overview page for more information on how to sign up for the tournament.  

The Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Grand Finals of the tournament will be broadcast live via the British Esports Twitch channel. With the talent line-up for the event to be confirmed over the coming weeks. 

British Esports aims to host similar regional events for England, Northern Ireland and Wales in the future.
