Rocketmakers win South West’s first esports festival
Software development company Rocketmakers have been crowned champions of the South West’s first region-wide corporate esports festival, organised by Tech South West and Exeter College.
The Bath-based firm pipped 15 other organisations from across the South West to the top spot in a Rocket League tournament, with the Exeter Chiefs rugby team and the Met Office among those taking part.
The Tech South West Esports Festival took place on Thursday February 24 at the new Digital and Data Centre at Exeter College, which houses the Exeter College Esports Academy and is part of the South West Institute of Technology. It’s the first in a new series of esports tournaments across the region organised by Tech South West, as we work to highlight the opportunities the industry brings to business and young people, as well as the hi-tech gaming hubs emerging across the South West.
The festival was supported by ultrafast broadband provider Jurassic Fibre, technology strategy and IT experts Timewade, software engineering firm Rowe, tech marketing agency Astley Media and fan engagement platform Filmily.
