Croatia-based esports and gaming startup Good Game and sports betting company Superology has announced the inaugural edition of a student esports tournament.
The Superology Student Esports Tournament will take place from October to December 2021. The event will feature eight teams from colleges that teach electrical engineering, computing, and other high-tech courses across Croatia.
Every university team will consist of six players. The teams will compete in FIFA 21, CS:GO, Rocket League, League of Legends and PUBG: Battlegrounds.
Nikola Stolnik, CEO of Good Game, commented: “Superology and Good Game are giving students a chance to try out a new communication platform – esports! Students of technical universities will have the opportunity to create new connections in one of the fastest-growing branches of the entertainment industry. We’d love it if a project like this was available when we were students, but luckily we are here to give SET to younger generations.”
Good Game is a Croatian esports brand focused on event organising. The company is most known for its networking-focused esports tournament which fields regional tech companies against each other in CS:GO. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the brand shifted its focus on online events and was one of the organisers of the official esports edition of the First Croatian Football league.
Esports Insider says: Although not the first university-based esports competition in Croatia, this tournament has the most support from Croatia’s academic community. Esports at a university level is always a good idea, and it’s good to see Croatia slowly taking steps into building a better esports ecosystem. Cooperating with a sports betting firm like Superology is sure to bring added credibility to this tournament.
