UK Esports Awards to be live streamed from ESL Studio 1

We are delighted to announce that we will be hiring the services of ESL UK for the production of our live awards ceremony. 

The event will be livestreamed by ESL and hosted at its state-of-the-art Studio 1 facility in Leicester on Saturday June 30th.

The UK Esports Awards powered by G FUEL will highlight a variety of UK esports talent from players to casters, managers to admins and more. For year one, the ceremony will be livestream-focused, with networking opportunities available to those physically attending. Ticketing info will be released at a later date.

The venue will hold a limited space for partners, brands and personalities on the evening.

We've hired ESL’s venue and will be using the broadcast team to livestream the awards evening.
