A new European league was announced last Friday

EGC Nation announced the launch of a new online gaming tournament Friday. 

The aim of the group is to create an online community of gamers, where players can meet in a friendly, safe and respectful environment. It will offer participants the opportunity to play in competitive online gaming ladders, leagues & tournaments to win cash & prizes.

The EGC’s website outlines their manifesto, which includes the following aims:

– To create a regulated gaming environment to encourage all levels of eSports in Europe

–  Ethical campaigns with the hope of aiding such movements against knife crime and gangs amongst youths.

– Zero tolerance on discrimination with regard to a country, clan/team or person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender, sexual orientation.

– The use of cutting edge web technologies to prevent the promotion, use of, or discussion of any illegal substances, gambling or pornographic material.

According to EGN’s website:

At EGC, we would like to welcome all European Esports gamers, to our new gaming portal designed by gamers. Our aim is to create a gaming nation, a place for competitive gamers to meet, greet & compete in a friendly, safe and respectful environment. We will be offering gamers the chance to play in competitive gaming leagues, ladders & tournaments, win cash & prizes using PC and the worlds leading games consoles. The future of EGC will be hosting a LAN based European Circuit in varying locations to suit all gaming enthusiasts.


Whether this new organization will grow into another European powerhouse of eSports or remain small and unknown is yet to be seen.  Stay tuned for further updates as they’re released.
