Starting with Insomnia62, esports at Insomnia Gaming Festival will be brought into the UK Masters family.
While the name might be changing, the experience for competitors will remain largely the same. We’ll continue to strive to present the best LAN tournament experience in the UK, while supporting a range of competitive titles for players of all backgrounds.
At Insomnia62, attendees can expect much of the same experience as previous Insomnia events. We will continue to support our most popular tournament titles, while adding some new titles into the mix.
Titles including Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Rocket League will make their return to the Insomnia tournament offering, being joined at this event by the Football Management World Esport Championship, In partnership with Bidstack. We’re excited to see Football Manager as part of our esports lineup for Insomnia62, and the £25,000 prize pool should be more than enough to tempt any budding club manager!
The current tournament lineup for Insomnia62 is as follows:
Sign ups for these tournaments are now live here, with detailed rulesets and schedules; more tournaments and our community games offerings will be announced in the coming weeks!
You’ll see the beginning of our changes at Insomnia62, we have a lot planned for the esports offering at Insomnia, and this is merely the start of that journey. Some small but noticeable changes are that we’ll be broadcasting from UK Masters branded twitch channels, we’ll be organising the esports activity though the UK Masters discord server, but for the most part it will be the Insomnia event you all know. As the team gets to work transforming Insomnia’s esports offering, you will begin to see more and more changes to the esports at Insomnia, and more projects from the UK Masters team.
With Insomnia63 we expect to bring real and ongoing positive changes to the experience of esports competitors at Insomnia. This will begin with how we support the UK & European Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scenes, the full extent of our plans will be revealed in the wake of Insomnia62.
We are looking ahead to an extremely exciting year of UK esports, and I can speak for the whole team when I say we cannot wait to start sharing with you what we’ve got planned for Insomnia63 and onwards!
