"It feels like our feet have barely touched the ground since our first awards a year ago - the last 12 months have been an absolute roller coaster for the EIA team," says founder Tom Mercey. "We've completely overhauled our processes, we've added new categories, new sponsors, welcomed new members of our judging panel and gone out to meet the Esports Community face-to-face.

"With the 2017 Awards a matter of days away the excitement is really starting to build and we can't wait for everything to kick off on Monday 13th - particularly now that we're joining forces with the amazing team over at Movember; they are our official charity partner so we'll being doing loads on the night to raise cold hard cash and awareness for their work to help them move even closer to their goal of changing the game in men's health"
