Welcome to LUU eSports Society!

University of Leeds eSport (electronic-sport) Society is a society with competitive gaming at its core. We currently have a strong presence in tournaments regularly competing against other University teams (and winning of course!). Games which feature prominently are League of Legends, DoTA, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Starcraft 2 and many more! However, don’t feel intimidated if you're new to gaming - gamers of all abilities are welcome!

Throughout the term, typical events you can expect are:

  •  Inter-university tournaments (on and offline)
  •  Offline events (LAN and Viewing Parties, Inter Society tournaments)
  •  Online society events (charity streams, weekly online matches)
  •  Many socials (Otley runs, pub trips, clubbing and even the odd non-alcoholic event too!)

Members also have many chances to win great prizes in free giveaways and tournaments provided by our sponsors, Molotovs and Marshmallows (a professional gaming team run by a Leeds Uni Student!), ebuyer (one of the largest retailers of computing goods in the UK), SC2Improve (a Starcraft 2 organisation run by a Leeds Student who also provides streaming and casting services), and GamersApparel (provider of official jerseys, t-shirts, hoodies).

The eSport Society has gone from strength to strength over the last year, with the DoTA2 team winning Arrow eSports Division 2 and finishing 3rd in the main tournament, the League of Legends A team being ranked 94 out of 234 in the National University eSport League (NUEL) and the CS:GO team finishing in the top 8 in the Winter NUEL tournament – up against the top university teams in the country. Other highlights include winning Varsity vs. Leeds Beckett, the 24-hour charity stream and naturally, the annual Otley run.

Esport Society is a great community, with a whole host of abilities and games represented within the society. To get involved, just press the "Join this group" button at the bottom of the page! Joining us will make you a fully-fledged member of the eSport Society. Unlike many other societies, we are, and always will be, free to join!
