Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports: free tickets to see the Spring Finals

Inside Confetti X and the NUEL spring finals

Antenna members and tenants can get free tickets to see the Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports Spring Finals on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 April 2023.

Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports is a collegiate esports partnership that exists across Europe, Latin America and North Africa. The UK and Ireland tournaments are organised and delivered by our tenants, NUEL in partnership with global technology company, GGTech, and our friends at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies.

This Spring term, hundreds of university esports teams from around the UK and Ireland have taken part every week in online tournaments to showcase their skills and test themselves in an organised play environment. Finalists are set to compete for thousands of pounds in prize money. We are delighted to announce that the Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports UK and Ireland Spring Finals will be live and in-person, held at our sister venue, Confetti X.

Over the weekend of 22 and 23 April, the finals will feature top esports titles League of Legends and VALORANT. In addition, the grand finals of the competition’s Women & Non-Binary VALORANT tournament – the first of its kind in the UK  – will also take place at the event.

There will also be European qualification on the line – with the finalists of the Open League of Legends and VALORANT tournaments competing for a chance to represent Great Britain in the Last Chance Qualifier of the prestigious Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports Masters in May. Attendance is ticketed but free, and it would be a great opportunity for anybody looking to learn more about esports to come and experience an in-person event in our high-quality facilities.
