Esports Tournament 2018
The Digital Schoolhouse powered by PlayStation National Esports Tournament is designed to engage and inspire students with careers and opportunities within the games, esports and creative industries.
Last year, our inaugural tournament saw 460 students compete in Rocket League, from four schools across the country. This year's tournament is predicted to be even bigger and better, with 20 schools participating across the UK and an estimated reach of 1500 - 2000 students. School based-heats will commence in December 2017, with the Grand Final taking place in March 2018.
99% of 8 - 15 year old children play games.
This tournament capitalises on the popularity of gaming to engage a greater number of students with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) subjects and Computing.
Students experience a full immersion in a professional esports event.
The tournament is designed to be an immersive careers event, aiming to engage more Secondary school students with computing and careers within the video games industry. We are committed to embedding educational values and careers links throughout.
