After two years of being unable to host live, physical events, the British University Esports Championship will be running its Spring Finals as a LAN-event, in front of a limited live audience.
UK university esports body NSE (National Student Esports) will stage its British University Esports Championship Finals 2022 at Insomnia68 (i68) on the 16th and 17th of April at the Birmingham NEC. The event will also feature a 120 seat crowd.
Insomnia Gaming Festival and NSE have announced a new partnership that will see the UK student esports and gaming community integrated into the UK festival.
Over the 2021/2022 academic year, organisers of the British University Esports Championship (BUEC), powered by Intel, say that 2,100 teams from more than 100 UK universities have battled to earn points across a number of esports titles with the aim to be crowned Esports University of the Year.
Insomnia Gaming Festival contains the biggest UK LAN party which has been taking place for over 20 years, and NSE will now host a first-of-its-kind dedicated LAN party for the UK university student community.
The event will feature a spectator area, and a partner area, which will host a range of activities over the course of the whole weekend. Likewise, as this event is part of Insomnia, it’s noted that anyone who grabs a ticket for the Spring Finals will have access to the full event’s main exhibition hall.
