Esports News UK has joined up with fellow news site UKCSGO to launch a brand new event: The UK Esports Awards powered by G FUEL.
You might remember this 2016 ENUK Awards article, which featured a mix of serious and light-hearted awards in article form.
It had a good reception, and gave us the idea to turn it into an actual event. UKCSGO founder Adam “Blanks” Heath also had that idea, and so we decided to join forces and help recognise some of the UK’s top esports talent, from players to casters, organisations to staff and more.
The UK Esports Awards powered by G FUEL is set to take place this spring as a livestreamed event. Depending on the reception, it could include an after-party or become a bigger event in the future, with ticketing options.
There will be no forced dress codes or posh meals here, we want this to be as inclusive as possible and open to the UK esports community.
“The people that put in the hard work to keep everything moving and growing in the UK scene tend to get overlooked. I feel we have a good base to build upon to make something that promotes the UK scene even more.”

UKCSGO and Reason Gaming manager Adam “Blanks” Heath commented: “A lot happens in the UK scene every year, and while coverage is getting better across the scene, the people that put in the hard work to keep everything moving and growing tend to get overlooked. I’ve been toying with the ideas of the UK Esports Awards powered by G FUEL for some time now and, after teaming up with Dom, I feel we have a good base to build upon to make something that promotes the UK scene even more.”
Esports News UK editor Dom Sacco added: “I’ve wanted to see some kind of awards event specifically for the UK esports scene for some time now, and I’m delighted to be teaming up with Blanks on this. With his knowledge of CSGO and my background in League of Legends, I think we will make this a great event together.”
