UK ESPORTS AWARDS 2019 FINALISTS REVEALED

We're pleased to announce that we've had a record-breaking year for nominations! The team has compiled and collated all your votes, and we can now announce the finalists for the 2nd Annual UK Esports Awards.

An expert panel consisting of 7 judges will be hard at work deciding and deliberating over the finalists to determine who will be victorious, who will then be revealed live on stream on Saturday 3rd August from 6pm.

The only difference to the finalists this year is that last’s years winners for all non-time sensitive awards have been automatically placed as a finalist this year.
