SCC Esports

Create next-generation careers and attract global talent

Esports in Colleges and Universities is creating next-generation careers and attracting global talent.

Esports is one of the world’s fastest growing industries which will be a $1.8 billion industry by 2022. In 2020 alone it attracted 450 million viewers with professional tournaments having multi-million pound prizes. It contributes more than £110 million in Gross Value Added (GVA) to the UK economy.

The UK Esports industry is the sixth biggest in the world, representing 8% of the global market and attracts some of the world’s best Esports talent. In 2019, it contributed £111.5 million in GVA to the UK economy, whilst just one major global Esports event could generate 238 fulltime equivalents (FTEs) of employment and £12 million in GVA for the UK economy.

Esports is now included as a pilot event at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. It is only going to get more and more popular!

That’s why forward-thinking colleges and universities in the UK are introducing Esports on campus, for use both within the curriculum and as a next-gen leisure offering, to create new revenue streams and attract students from around the world to all courses.
