Today marks the first ever Esports clash between two varsity rivals in the University of Gloucestershire vs the University of Worcester. The two Universities will be facing off in two fixtures on both Rocket League and Super Smash Bros. 3v3 in the football inspired game and 2v2 on the Mario franchise.
The whole Varsity Esports event is for the charity ‘Special Effect’, which essentially funds disabled gamers who need specialised equipment in order to continue participating in their favourite passion and pastime. The event is taking donations and every penny raised will help to aid this cause.
Our reporter Elliot Lee is involved in the commentary for the Rocket League contest and we got to have a chat with him about how exciting this upcoming competition is. With football clubs even signing FIFA players to represent them and win cash prizes within tournaments. Listen to the whole interview here –
