UKETC: What Is UKETC And What It Means For Esports?


The UK Esports Team Committee (UKETC) was launched early last month on 8 July 2021. The UKETC is an independent committee formed by several top esports organizations which include Endpoint, Excel sports, MNM gaming, Fnatic, London Royal Ravens, Spitfire, and Vexed gaming

These organisations will also be known as the founding members of the UKETC. British Esports Association will also be supporting the UKETC. The newly formed committee invites all esports organisations to be a part of the committee. The committee has laid specific criterias such as:

  • The organization needs to have a respectable track record in esports competitions 
  • Should be at least 3 years old as a brand in itself in the industry

The committee was formed to ensure a single official representation which will act as the collective voice for the UK teams across several platforms and industry discussions. Additionally, the body will also be responsible for encouraging professionalism in the esports ecosystem, thereby enhancing the goodwill and credibility of the industry.

While officially announcing the launch of the UKETC, several other objectives of the committee were also put forward such as increasing the opportunities for UK-based esports teams, defining and maintaining standards for every UK esports team as well as carrying out detailed press releases in a timely manner.

Even after the amends and objectives being put in place, the British Esports Association giving it a go ahead in terms of ‘mere’ support is a commendable step. Surprisingly, the British Esports Association has explicitly stated that the UKETC will not be a formal sub-committee under its banner. It is expected to operate independently and collaboratively.

Committees like these give rise to the questions around esports as an industry, wherein the developed countries aren’t willing to trust on an esports brand or a formal body. We can only imagine the struggle of a similar concept in India and the motivation for esports players around the world.
