UNIVERSITY Esports Masters Announcement



Reading Time: 2 minutes

UNIVERSITY Esports Masters (UE Masters) announces the launch of Season 2024, featuring competitive gaming tournaments for university students across Europe. The season includes tournaments in League of LegendsVALORANTRocket LeagueTeamfight Tactics, and Clash Royale.  

UNIVERSITY Esports Masters is the international competition for university students, where students from all over Europe compete for the title of European University Champion. The 2024 edition will be the 8th season of the competition, and will have a total prize pool of €14,000.  

More than just an esports competition

The main goals of UEMasters are to foster a sense of community among players across Europe, give them the opportunity to compete in high quality international tournaments and provide opportunities to the next generation to take esports further.


In addition to supporting players in a potential career as esports players, the event is an opportunity for many students to take paid organisation and broadcast roles – both on camera and behind the scenes. This presents the next generation of grassroots talent, not just players, with valuable chances to get their first professional experience in the burgeoning esports industry.

How can UK students qualify?

Open Tournaments

The single player games included in UEMasters – Teamfight Tactics and Clash Royale – are now open to students to sign up. To participate, students must be enrolled in universities registered with the associated national competitions (in the UK, this competition is UNIVERSITY Esports), and not be professional players.  

Registration is open until March 6th, and interested players can register via the following links:


Teamfight Tactics:

The Teamfight Tactics competition will take place on March 9th and 10th, distributing a prize pool of €550 among its top players. The Clash Royale tournament will be held on March 16th and 17th, with a prize pool of €350 for the top players.

Team-Based Games

Teams will be formed from each country’s national qualifiers, allowing students to represent their country in the competition and vie for the European Champion title.

The teams representing Great Britain in League of LegendsVALORANT, and Rocket League  will be the winners of the Spring seasons of UNIVERSITY Esports, a competition organised in the UK by NUEL, and the British University Esports Championship, organised by NSE.


Teams from universities in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are not able to qualify through UK competitions, but instead can qualify for UEM through the Ireland Collegiate Esports Series.

As of the 30th March 2024, Supabets’ players now have access to a  plethora of Hacksaw games at their fingertips, and their platform currently stands as the only place players can access our games in South Africa.

The South African market has been on our radar for a while now, but like all good things, this partnership took time, refinery and hard work from both parties. A relatively new market to our expanding industry, but with the potential to be one of the most lucrative we’ve seen in a while. Needless to say, we are thrilled to now be a part of it!

Household Hacksaw names such as Chaos Crew, Wanted Dead or a Wild and The Bowery Boys are now available for Supabet users, and we’re ‘supa’ excited for South African players to immerse themselves in the true Hacksaw experience for the first time ever. But we’re not stopping there. As a homage to this new partnership, we’re planning on increasing our portfolio to over 30 of our games by August, and there are even whispers of game exclusives for South Africa in the future.


Supabets, founded for the people, have been at the forefront of promoting innovative and dynamic experiences for their customers since 2008. Head of Product at Supabet, Bavu Mpama, couldn’t contain his excitement on this recent launch – “What a ride it’s been trying to make this all possible, with the help of the Hacksaw team we are now able to launch one of the best providers in the market at Supabets. It’s been incredible to see the growth of the iGaming industry in South Africa. It’s a huge moment for Supabets, our customers and the iGaming industry in South Africa. We cannot wait!”

“It’s a thrilling expansion into a new region for Hacksaw Gaming, one that I’m confident will see mutual growth of both Hacksaw and Supabets.” Marcus Cordes, CEO of Hacksaw Gaming stated that “as always, our focus remains on delivering the Hacksaw quality we’re known for. Supplying unique and innovative content  that is not only visually stunning, but provides players with inventive mechanics that they know and love us for.”

Looking towards that stunning South African horizon, we’re certain that this is just the beginning of what we can provide to this new region of Hacksaw Gaming enthusiasts.
