It’s no secret that Esports as an industry is growing rapidly. The gaming community has always had an element of competition ever since playing games multiplayer was possible. But now, the level of competition has grown to a point where it is much like well established sports with dedicated competitors and spectators.
The College recognises the potential for Esports which relies heavily on a lot of technology to make it possible to host and broadcast events, paving the way for a range of careers.
As part of South Devon College’s recognition of this, they are excited to launch an Esports summer tournament with the chance to win £250 worth of Amazon vouchers to share with your team!
