Esports Scotland BIG Fest 2018

The SEL is coming to a close and the penultimate matches will soon be all that is left to take place, to crown our first Scottish Esports League champions. Also taking place will be the finals of the Overwatch Esports Scotland Cup, on Xbox one. Online Qualifiers for OESC took place in August.

Anyone can join in at our ESS BIG Fest 2018 finals, and watch live as we crown champions on multiple stages across multiple floors.

The venue will have no less than 4 gaming areas, covering all the finals for every game featured in the SEL, as well as our Overwatch Esports Scotland Cup grand finals on the centre stage. The Hub zone will be available for teams between matches and for some social gaming, you could even be a warm-up opponent for a future champion!

Tickets are limited to 200 full weekend tickets and 150 single day tickets per event day, so book early to avoid disappointment.
