Various colleagues from across the UK are forming teams to represent their companies in a multi-game tournament series.

The WFH League, organised by B2B publication and conference provider Esports Insider (ESI) and gaming bar Platform, is returning for a third season.

The WFH League, aka ‘work from home, win from home’, was first announced back in April 2020, shortly after the first lockdowns came into effect.

This year the league will have three campaigns – spring, autumn and winter. The first will get underway online from May 10th to 30th and feature 3v3 Rocket League, 2v2 CSGO Wingman and 2v2 Brawlhalla.

All three events will be broadcast live on the WFH League Twitch channel in May.

It’s hoped a physical event will take place at London’s Platform bar in September.

Eight teams will compete in each tournament for prizes/ In past seasons, the likes of Razer, Noblechairs and G-Science have provided prizes for the event.

WFH League will once again raise money for SpecialEffect, the UK-based charity that helps people with disabilities play video games.

Season 1 and 2 saw the likes of, Hitmarker, Hiro Capital and Kairos crowned champions. Other previous participants included Barclays, Twitch, Excel Esports, Square Enix, Blast, GGRecon, KontrolFreek and more.

The second season saw over 370,000 hours watched, across more than 38 broadcast hours, with casters including DigitalBacon and MilkyCereal for Rocket League, Austin Ventour and Hawka on CSGO, and James Allcott and Flav for FIFA.

In a joint statement by WFH League’s co-founders, Esport Insider MD Sam Cooke and Platform COO Nicolo Portunato, the duo commented: “We really appreciated the support of the industry and community [last year], indeed all those involved in making it happen, and we can’t wait to kick off our third season, especially since in the Autumn it’ll include our first IRL edition at Platform in London.”

Tom Donegan from SpecialEffect added: “The WFH League was one of the highlights of 2020 and we’re delighted to be the charity partner again in 2021. Gamers raising money to support their fellow gamers, while having a laugh at the same time – it doesn’t get much better than that!”

It costs £100 (+VAT) for a team to enter a specific tournament.
