Business Esports Back With January 2021 Tournaments
After the success of Business Esports 2020 tournaments we are delighted to be kicking off 2021 with our biggest Business Esports event yet offering cross console Call of Duty tournaments and XBOX and PS FIFA Tournaments in January 2021.
Business Esports is the perfect way to unwind after work and switch off from reality for a couple hours, which we feel is much needed during these uncertain times. Cody Leiper from HighNet, COD runners up in November, said: “The whole team have had such a laugh and it has been something we’ve all massively looked forward to each night. I’ve seen the same response across the board with all the other companies we’ve played against”.
With charity a huge driver behind Business Fives having raised over £175,000 and counting, entrants will be encouraged to fundraise as much as they can for their chosen charity and the winner will bag themselves a donation of 10% of all revenue and bragging rights, of course. Our November 2020 COD Tournament showed the great sportsmanship we love at Business Esports when COD champions Silverchip chose to split their charity donation with runners up HighNet, allowing both The Christie and Highland Hospice to benefit from the November charity donation.
As remote working looks set to form part of our new 2021 working lifestyles, our upcoming tournaments offer a great way for teams to stay connected and develop team relationships. We believe teamwork is crucial and now more than ever companies are prioritising the mental wellbeing of employees. At this time, it’s important for businesses to continue to encourage employees to be mentally stimulated.
The format of the event differs to previous Business Esports events with the action starting online on the evening of Tuesday 19th January with 4 game evenings that week culminating in finals night on the 22nd. Each participant will take part in the event remotely using their own device. All team members must have access to the same brand of console either an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for the FIFA but the COD tournament can be cross console.
For the FIFA Tournament teams of four take part and play together as a team, with each player playing a member of the rival once with the aggregate scoreline of all the matches deciding the result. For Call of Duty teams of 4 will play a 15-minute death match against a rival team, with 3 points awarded for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for the losing team. All the rules for the tournaments can be found here.
Alongside making a charitable impact, these tournaments offer an opportunity to meet new people and develop existing connections in a socially distant manner. All companies taking part will have their presence branded and additional marketing exposure will be available through various sponsorship packages associated with Business Esports events.
Business Fives and Business Esports founder, John McClarey, is looking forward to the upcoming January events. He said “We have been delighted with the uptake from our clients already part of the Business Fives community and beyond. The events have created a real buzz on social media and we thoroughly enjoy watching the action on the streams and getting involved in the online chat, it’s certainly been a welcome replacement to the enjoyment of live events. We’re really excited to kick off our 2021 events with our January Esports tournament with lots of ambitious plans to expand the esports offering further next year.”
