How to support Esports News UK: Become a patron or ad partner

patreon logo 1

It’s not easy running a small independent esports publication. Help keep us running – support Esports News UK on Patreon.

If you’re a fan of what we do and would like to make a small regular donation, you will allow us to produce more UK esports content and pay for better web hosting. Any donation you can offer would be massively appreciated – and we have a bunch of support rewards on offer too (including permanently listing our patrons on this very page).

For more information, check out the Esports News UK on crowdfunding website Patreon or watch this video:


Here’s our list of paying patrons. These people are officially awesome, and are helping us to make better content, cover more games, pay for fast, reliable web hosting, grow our team and attend more events. They have our thanks! Please give them a follow:

Events and consultancy

Esports News UK organises events and offers bespoke esports consultancy (click this link for more info and testimonials), including a training course for brands, investors and more who are interested in esports but want to understand it better and succeed within it.

Also, in late 2022 we organised three sold-out events including the Esports News UK 7th birthday networking event, a League of Legends Worlds final viewing party and Christmas esports gathering at London’s Platform bar, each with 100+ guests.

We also offer esports speaking work such as guest talks and lectures.

If you’re a brand interested in becoming a headline partner for a future event, or sponsoring my editorial coverage of a third-party event, like Insomnia Gaming Festival in Birmingham, please get in touch.
