Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

NUEL, the UK and Ireland organiser of Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports, has been acquired by GGTech Entertainment, a leading esports company. The strategic acquisition will see NUEL become the office for GGTech’s operations in the UK & Ireland, increasing its core activities in university esports as well as planning and delivering an array of grassroots esports and gaming activities.

NUEL will continue operating under its name but with an increased focus on player-facing brands associated with each project – for example UNIVERSITY Esports. The senior leadership at NUEL will also remain with the company, with founder Josh Williams leading GGTech’s global UNIVERSITY Esports programme. David Jackson will continue as Managing Director of NUEL and Peter Cole will continue as Head of Product.

A board of directors has been created which will oversee NUEL’s operations – this board will include GGTech senior management as well as Josh Williams and David Jackson.

NUEL now has direct access to the resources and expertise of GGTech, which has experience of delivering top-tier events on a global scale. As a result, the company can deliver more and better experiences for players in the region, as well as offer more opportunities for early career professionals trying to make their way in the industry. With a solid track record of delivering grassroots esports activities, the acquisition provides NUEL with the potential to not only grow in the UK & Ireland, but also make a valuable contribution to GGTech’s global activities.

NUEL and GGTech have collaborated extensively in recent years, including work on Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports in the UK and Ireland, and the Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports Masters, the marquee international university esports competition in Europe. Together, the two companies are closely aligned and share similar visions to support grassroot esports and build gaming communities.

Staff and students involved with NUEL have already had opportunities to work on GGTech’s international projects – including travelling out to GGTech’s facilities in Alicante to work on some of GGTech’s flagship events such as the TFT Dragonlands Championship – and this move will further expand these opportunities and facilitate progression for staff and players.

José Parilla, CEO and founder of GGTech, said: “As a company, we’re continuously looking for ways to develop and expand our services around the world. Partnering with NUEL enables us to not only enhance experiences for players and staff, but also share our commitment and excitement for the esports industry across the UK.”

“Since we began in 2010, our mission has been to widen access to esports and create memorable experiences for players, as well as providing meaningful opportunities for people to further their careers. We have been working with GGTech for years now, they share our commitment to these goals, and I’m excited for us to embark on this new stage in our journey as part of GGTech,” said NUEL founder Josh Williams.

GGTech Entertainment, based in Spain, is one of the biggest esports organisers and expanding rapidly across both EMEA and the Americas. In addition to launching and managing the global UNIVERSITY Esports project, GGTech produces Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends and Teamfight Tactics Championships, the EMEA and Global competitions of Riot Games’ strategy game. GGTech is also responsible for the GAMERGY series of major gaming conventions, with recent events held in Madrid, Buenos Aires and Mexico City. It also develops Circuito Tormenta, Riot Games’ main amateur competition in Spain.

First established as a student-run organisation in 2010, NUEL is the UK and Ireland organiser of Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports, a pan-European university esports competition managed globally by GGTech. Beyond university esports, NUEL recently developed and ran Rising Stars – the first official pan-European women’s League of Legends tournament – and the qualifiers for the “Rest-of-EMEA” region in the Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends ecosystem. In May 2023, it ran the England/Wales/Ireland Minor event in the Northern Europe VALORANT BEACON circuit.

Last year, NUEL and GGTech announced a partnership with Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies – part of Nottingham Trent University – which saw NUEL relocate its head office to Nottingham, and hold live finals for its Winter 2022 and Spring 2023 seasons at the newly opened Confetti X esports complex.

The esports analytics service Esports Charts, in collaboration with betting brand GG.BET, widely known for its promotion of esports, has published extensive game and betting data for BLAST Premier: Spring Final 2024. The stats reveal how the players and teams performed, and provide insights into who viewers bet on the most.

The final stage of the BLAST Premier Spring Final 2024 Counter-Strike 2 tournament took place from 12 to 16 June. Over 18,000 spectators gathered at the OVO Arena Wembley in London for the tournament playoffs. It was the first time the UK had hosted a Counter-Strike event on such a scale for six years.

Esports Charts analyzed the event and published a series of reports with reviews of the teams’ and individual players’ greatest achievements in the tournament. Before it started, the analytics service published a retrospective review of the viewership of BLAST Premier Spring tournaments over previous years, statistics on the popularity of different team members among Twitch stream audiences, and exclusive data on which teams GG.BET users bet on to win in the tournament.

After the tournament ended, Esports Charts shared its results. The collection of infographics included data on teams’ performances, such as the most spectacular comebacks and wins in rounds with the lowest budget for purchases. They also show betting statistics, such as which teams’ wins produced the most winnings. The final set of information shows how players performed and contains exclusive betting data on individual performances like total deaths and total kills.

GG.BET press office:

“The publication of insights into major CS2 tournaments is becoming a tradition. In March of this year, we shared insights into the first CS2 Major in history. Specialists from both GG.BET and Esports Charts dive deep into the tournaments, analyze a huge quantity of data, and therefore have the chance to monitor exciting esports community trends. We’ll also continue to share the insights we find in the future.

Analytics service Esports Charts is famous for its extensive analysis of esports streams. GG.BET is an international betting brand with a wealth of expertise in esports. Thanks to their joint collaboration, both companies have been able to provide information that the esports community wouldn’t normally consider.
