EPIC.LAN Partners with University of Northampton to provide esports tournament platform for student training

Posted : 04 January 2024

UK-based gaming and esports event organizer EPIC.LAN has entered into a partnership with the University of Northampton to provide its in-house esports tournament platform for educational use.


Under this collaboration, students at the university will utilize the EPIC.LAN esports platform as an educational resource, gaining practical experience and guidance on various aspects of esports tournament operations.


The partnership, initiated in 2021, allows students not only to access the platform but also attend LAN events, providing them with a direct experience of the workings of esports events.


The University of Northampton is among several UK universities offering esports degrees, and this collaboration with EPIC.LAN enhances the educational experience by incorporating practical training in esports tournament operations.


With the unexpected closure of the Kettering Conference Centre, where EPIC.LAN held events for the past ten years, the upcoming EPIC41 event is relocated to the Wolverhampton Racecourse, scheduled from February 22nd to 25th. The event will feature tournaments for popular titles such as Counter-Strike 2, VALORANT, and Overwatch.


Jon Winkle, the Managing Director of EPIC.LAN, emphasized the value of the collaboration in providing practical experience for students at the University of Northampton. The addition of the esports tournament platform and associated training is aimed at preparing students for real-world scenarios in esports operations throughout their careers.
