What does 'esports' actually mean?

 "Generally, the easiest definition is competitive gaming at a professional level. It only includes video games, but pretty much any game with a winner and a loser can be played as an esport, although the bigger the player base and the more support it has, the better the competition." 

What will UWE Esports do?

Our esports society aims to become the home for competitive gaming at UWE and to represent it professionally on a national level. After Freshers Fair (Friday 20th September at ECC on Frenchay Campus, come visit us!), our society will be used to form teams of UWE students and provide opportunities to compete - mainly at the NSE and NUEL tournaments as well as locally e.g. during LANs or local Bristol tournaments.
The aim is to allow players to improve their skills and build friendships with others while gaining experience in the game of their choosing. Teams will be managed throughout the year to ensure that people with similar goals can compete together, rather than feel forced to stay with the same roster all year long. Of course we aim to accommodate as many games as possible however, it all depends on the interest and the opportunities out there.
To stay up-to-date and to compete please join our society & our Discord Server where you will be able to assign yourself to specific game roles and be provided with necessary information. If you need any help with settling into Discord or have any questions, dont be afraid to contact committee members or game representatives and don't forget to checkout+follow our social media!


Using the UWE coat of arms as inspiration and the kits of the UWE sports teams, we commissioned a logo with a graphic designer to feature a noble sea stag as its centrepiece. The colour scheme for the logo is red, black and white to match with the consistent colours of the Univeristy of the West of England.
