Army eSports keeping up connections this Christmas

It’s hard to be apart from your loved ones at the best of times but, at Christmas, it can be unbearable. In an effort to combat loneliness with Service Personnel who are deployed, isolated, or separated from their loved ones, British Army eSports runs national and international gaming tournaments, to bring players together, virtually.

HQ RC formally launched British Army Esports in Apr 2020 following on from the great success of INSOMNIA gaming festivals in 2019. Army Esports is an online Club House for Army gamers of all ages, ranks and cap-badges.

The Club House sits within DISCORD, an online distribution platform designed for creating communities. Anyone can join British Army Esports via a smartphone, tablet, PC or gaming console. To have full access, individuals must prove they are serving regular or reserve soldiers. 

The Club House is moderated, and all that join must agree to follow the Army Value and Standards. There are currently over 2,200 members in Army Esports and it is growing fast with approximately 100 new members every month. The Army Esports Club is now the largest active esports club in the UK. It is open 24/7 and allows soldiers to chat, share clips and organise & play video games of all genres. It is managed and run by soldiers in their spare time who are passionate about esports and happy to volunteer for these extra duties. There is also a competitive element where Regt and Corp teams can compete in Leagues and Tournaments.

Today, December 17th, Army Esports are organising a Gathering, to drive awareness of eSports and how they can play a role in combating mental health problems. On the agenda will inevitably be some games, but also some banter and interviews. For more information, please visit the British Army Esports Twitter channel:

Wifinity is proud to support this fantastic cause.
