More than just an esports competition

The main goals of UEMasters are to foster a sense of community among players across Europe, give them the opportunity to compete in high quality international tournaments and provide opportunities to the next generation to take esports further.

In addition to supporting players in a potential career as esports players, the event is an opportunity for many students to take paid organisation and broadcast roles – both on camera and behind the scenes. This presents the next generation of grassroots talent, not just players, with valuable chances to get their first professional experience in the burgeoning esports industry.
