NSE and Scan Computers partnership

NSE and Scan Computers have today announced a partnership which will see a new esports tournament launched for students and alumni in the UK.

The UK-based gaming PC builder has joined forces with the university esports body National Student Esports (NSE), to become NSE’s Official Gaming System Partner.

Scan will support NSE’s British University Esports Championship (BUEC), which boasts more than 2,200 teams and 111 universities. NSE will also integrate Scan’s custom 3XS Systems gaming PCs into the BUEC finals at Insomnia Gaming Festival.

NSE and Scan Computers will also launch a new tournament open to students and alumni alike. This will be run by NSE and take place after the BUEC Spring season.

According to a press release on today’s announcement, details on which esports title will be featured are yet to be announced, but there will be more information in the coming months.

“This partnership signifies our commitment to providing the best grassroots gaming experiences and opportunities to university students and alumni across the UK.”

In addition, Scan will be powering NSE’s Tech Talk channel in its Discord server home to over 13,500 members of the UK university esports community. Tech Talk in NSE’s community provides advice to gamers embarking on their esports journey, where students talk to each other about PC builds, components and more.

Scan joins fellow NSE partners Intel, Monster Energy, DrayTek and Unidays.

Alex Coulson, Managing Director at NSE, said: “It’s amazing to have Scan on board supporting the British University Esports Championship and enhancing our wider community’s university esports experience. This partnership signifies our commitment to providing the best grassroots gaming experiences and opportunities to university students and alumni across the UK.”

Michael O’Dell, Director of Gaming and Esports at Scan Computers, added:
“Gaming has been a core focus for Scan for over 30 years, working closely in partnership with esports organisations. Our groundbreaking 3XS Systems gaming PCs are at the forefront of design and technology, so we’re delighted to team up with NSE, helping to enrich the student experience and support university esports.”

The winter season of the British University Esports Championship is currently underway, with students competing in a number of titles including Valorant, Teamfight Tactics, Rocket League, League of Legends, Overwatch 2, Rainbow Six Siege, Counter-Strike 2 and Dota 2. NSE also introduced two new titles to the roster this season: Apex Legends and Splatoon 3.
