Outline:

The National University Esports League (The NUEL) champions the development of competitive gaming at UK universities by supporting campus Esports societies nationwide, and running the inter-university National Championships.

Now in its sixth season, The NUEL – a Studio tenant since 2014 – has 125 UK university members whose teams regularly compete in its tournaments, and has a staff of 40 employees and volunteers.

It also has a growing number of partners, supporters and clients including GAME, Red Bull, Riot Games, Samsung, Super Evil Megacorp and Twitch.

The NUEL contributed to the UKIE Whitepaper on UK eSports and Josh is a member of the advisory board for the British eSports Association.

Having the opportunity to make a difference to other people’s lives is certainly worth all the paperwork you have to deal with!
