New esports platform launches for University students throughout the UK

A brand new esports platform for University students throughout the UK has been launched by specialist digital provider Code Wizards in time for this year’s students.

The platform has been created for the newly formed company National Student Esports (NSE) a member of The Benchmark Sport Group which runs traditional sports businesses such as the Square Mile Relay and Beyond Sport which promotes social change through sport.

Code Wizards have used their proven experience of building engaging and highly scaleable platforms to realise NSE’s university esports platform and NSE has partnered with British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) to operate the UK’s official body for university esports.

Stuart Muckley Managing Director of Code Wizards commented, “The platform realises NSE’s vision of enabling Universities to manage their own esports data and society information and also to share information, articles and news. 

“For esports societies the enabling of forming and managing their teams will provide a next-generation platform to promote and encourage inter-university esports competitions and tournaments.

“Outside of esports most people won’t realise the “gg” in the URL is a short hand for ‘Good Game’.  That’s a phrase we like all of our customers to say to us on successful launch!”

Jonathan Tilbury from The Benchmark Sport Group said,” We are delighted that Code Wizards were able to complete the project on time and within budget.

“Students now have a single destination to share information with like minded enthusiasts and we expect this to dramatically improve accessibility of the space.”

Code Wizards secures Prominent partner

Following the continued expansion of Code Wizards into Birmingham they are delighted to announce they have now secured a strategic partner agreement with midlands based Prominent Media and Communications.

The reciprocal arrangement will enable Code Wizards to expand their promotional services through the expertise of the Prominent team with PR, digital marketing and award-winning film creation.

Created in 2012, Code Wizards quickly established themselves as specialists in web based digital architecture by mixing invention with engineering to help clients automatically scale their business.

Stuart Muckley, managing director of Code Wizards commented, “I have known Steve for some time now and it seemed a natural progression to bring our respective teams together through a formal partnership arrangement, especially now that our Birmingham office is very much up and running.”

Since 1998 Prominent Media and Communications based at Birmingham International Park have continually expanded their promotional services and in 2016 they secured approval for commercial drone filming through their Prominent Digital brand.

Steve Holden, managing director at Prominent Media and Communications said, “This is an ideal fit for us as both companies have no overlap of services and therefore our individual companies get access to additional and proven services normally outside of our skill-sets.”
