Croatian esports tournament organiser and agency Good Game Global and Croatian IT company Infobip have partnered to host the LAN finals of the Student Esports Tournament (SET) on the Infobip Campus in Zagreb, Croatia.

The event will see eight university teams compete in four separate finals across four games (League of Legends, Counter-Strike, VALORANT and Rocket League), at the Infobip Alpha Centauri headquarters.

SET is the largest student esports competition in Croatia, now in its fifth season. The tournament has grown to include 22 universities and colleges in Croatia which field rosters in VALORANT, Counter-Strike 2, Rocket League and League of Legends. The newest season saw some format changes, namely the one that allows each university to field separate rosters for each game, instead of having a single group of players that compete in all titles.

The event is also the regional qualifier for several European tournaments, such as the University Esports Masters, FACEIT Collegiate Europe and UNIRocketeers.

The LAN finals will take place on the Alpha Centauri Campus, the Innovation Campus of Croatian IT company Infobip. The company, which was interestingly the first-ever Croatian company to have a valuation of over $1m, has partnered with Good Game Global to provide the space for the event at its campus, built in 2022.

The event is supported by the likes of McDonald’s, Corsair, Hisense, Acer and Philips OneBlade, in addition to Infobip and other local partners and sponsors. This is the first time that McDonald’s is supporting an esports project in Croatia.

Nikola Stolnik, CEO of Good Game Global, commented: “It’s very exciting hosting our first Student Esports Tournament LAN finals together with Infobip, Croatia’s first unicorn. We’ve been building our vision for the ultimate student esports experience across five seasons, always pushing production levels to the extreme because we believe students deserve all that we can provide. Together with our partners, the vision of bridging the tech community and students interested in esports is coming ever closer to reality.”

Good Game Global is most known for its flagship B2B esports event Good Game Zagreb which sees regional tech companies compete against each other in Counter-Strike matches.
