"We get asked to sponsor competitions and giveaways all the time and have never really taken them up, then ESL UK came to us with a proposal that we found hard to turn down, not only would we be getting a lot of great exposure within the gaming industry we would also be seeing the prize go to a worthy winner.

About ESL UK

Electronic Sports Limited has just recently acquired the ESL UK license for the coming 12 months. In the initial year of the license we aim to increase the current level of development of the e-Sports scene in the UK, combining the online and LAN environments to create an atmosphere for individuals and teams to treat as home.
