eSports powerhouse Stryda has again joined forces with Riot Games to announce the Stryda Valorant Nordic Clash championship. This much-anticipated tournament calls on gamers of all levels to showcase their skills against one another across the Nordic region.

Commencing in October and culminating in a nail-biting grand finale in December, the Stryda Valorant Nordic Clash tournament promises an extraordinary display of skill, strategy and intensity. This collaboration serves as a testament to the unrelenting commitment of both Stryda and Riot Games to elevate and celebrate the talents of eSports players.

New Addition: Clan Events

At the same time as unveiling the Stryda Valorant Nordic Clash, Stryda is thrilled to present a revolutionary addition to its platform, Clan Events. Launched this week, Clan Events offers a fresh and engaging competition format that not only provides users with a new level of activity but also serves as a way to qualify for the upcoming Stryda Nordic Clash. Clan Events centres around collaborative team play; members must unite their skills to accumulate points. The primary objective is for clan members to team up as a party of five (a 5-stack) and play Valorant matches. Victory earns the clan one point while a defeat results in losing one point. Clans then compete based on their accumulated points, vying for the top spot on the leaderboard.

Distinctive Features of Clan Events

Unlike Stryda’s existing competition format, Ladders, Clan Events boasts distinct characteristics that set it apart:

  • Free participation: Engaging in Clan Events comes at no cost, ensuring accessibility for all users.
  • Collective play: Clan Events emphasize collaborative play, requiring a team of five clan members to participate in each match.
  • Unique scoring system: The scoring system is tailored exclusively to Clan Events, enhancing the competitive dynamics and fostering strategic gameplay.

This innovative addition not only widens the horizons for eSports enthusiasts but also introduces a new way for clans to prove their strength on the gaming stage.

BLAST, the global esports entertainment company, and British Esports, the national body for esports in the UK, have announced a strategic partnership during a landmark year for the UK industry.

This collaboration will focus BLAST and British Esports efforts on political lobbying, grassroots development, education, careers, and professional development. The partnership comes during a historic year for the UK esports industry, with a record number of tier one esports events taking place, helping to position the region as a global hub for esports and gaming.

With the UK holding an 6% share of the global esports market and the global sector expected to reach $1.6 billion by the end of this year, this partnership aims to capitalise on this momentum and foster further growth.
Robbie Douek, CEO of BLAST, said: “This partnership with British Esports is a pivotal step in our mission to support the esports ecosystem in the UK. By focusing on key pillars together, we aim to create a sustainable and inclusive environment that encourages growth and professional development at every level. This year alone, the world’s biggest game publishers are choosing the UK as a destination for their esports ecosystems and arena events, helping position the region as a global hub for esports and big-scale events.

This partnership with British Esports will allow us bridge the gap between tier one arena events and grassroots esports.”
Chester King, CEO of British Esports, said: “2024 is a landmark year for esports in the UK as we host some of the most iconic global esports events.

This is an incredible opportunity to leave a legacy from grassroots to professional that promotes the UK as a leading global destination for esports. That is why we were thrilled when Robbie and the team at BLAST visited our National Esports Performance Campus in Sunderland earlier this month to finalise our partnership. This collaboration between two leading British esports organisations will not only help to solidify the UK as a leading hub for esports but also ensure that we are nurturing the next generation of talent and providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to succeed.”

The partnership comes in a month where London is set to host two tier one esports arena events in consecutive weeks, with the BLAST Premier Spring Final taking place in Wembley Arena this week and the RLCS London Major in Copper Box Arena next week. These combined events will see more than 25,000 fans watch live esports events in-person in the United Kingdom in June alone.
To mark the launch of the partnership, Robbie Douek, CEO for BLAST, recently met Dave Martin, SVP for British Esports, for a tour of the National Esports Performance Campus in Sunderland.
