Organisers have also made a number of changes to the event for 2019: it will be leaving behind the ESL UK studio in Leicester for Rich Mix in Shoreditch, London.
Doors will open at 6pm at the UK Esports Awards 2019, which will take place on Saturday August 3rd in two rooms. One will be for the awards show (starting at 7.30pm) and the other for the after party and networking event (10pm). The former is invite-only while the latter will be ticketed.
