New esports platform launches for University students throughout the UK
Specialist digital provider Code Wizards has launched a brand new esports platform for University students throughout the UK in time for this year’s students.
The platform has been created for the newly formed company National Student Esports (NSE) a member of The Benchmark Sport Group, which runs traditional sports businesses such as the Square Mile Relay and Beyond Sport, which promotes social change through sport.
Code Wizards have used their proven experience of building engaging and highly scaleable platforms to realise NSE’s university esports platform and NSE has partnered with British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) to operate the UK’s official body for university esports.
Stuart Muckley Managing Director of Code Wizards commented, “The platform realises NSE’s vision of enabling Universities to manage their own esports data and society information and also to share information, articles and news.
“For esports societies the enabling of forming and managing their teams will provide a next-generation platform to promote and encourage inter-university esports competitions and tournaments.
“Outside of esports most people won’t realise the “gg” in the nse.gg URL is a short hand for ‘Good Game’. That’s a phrase we like all of our customers to say to us on successful launch!”
Jonathan Tilbury from The Benchmark Sport Group said,” We are delighted that Code Wizards were able to complete the project on time and within budget.
“Students now have a single destination to share information with like minded enthusiasts and we expect this to dramatically improve accessibility of the space.”
