Being from the UK myself, it has always saddened me that eSports is simply not that big over here. A mix of the high cost of living as well as high taxes make being a pro, or running an organisation in the UK a little harder than it is in many other countries. The number of full-time professional gamers from the UK is small and many of them choose to leave after they have become established, so the scene doesn’t grow.

The one major exception to this rule has always been Team Dignitas, a long-standing, multi-game eSports organisation based in England. Today, in association with SCAN Computers, they announced a UK-only LoL tournament. It will feature eight teams and run throughout March with a £2250 prize pool.

This is wonderful news for the fledgling UK scene. You can find all the details, as well as how YOU can sign up, on the official page: HERE
