Nintendo U.K. Unveils Plan To Launch Junior Esports Tournaments

Nintendo U.K. recently unveiled a partnership with Digital Schoolhouse and Outright Games. As a result of this deal, Nintendo will expand its U.K.-based esports ecosystem by introducing a new national video game tournament series aimed at children.

The DSH Junior esports tournament was created for children between the ages of eight and 11. This partly career-oriented experience will provide kids with events that offer insight into the ever-growing esports industry.

“We are thrilled in our role as lead partner for Digital Schoolhouse to be bringing yet another transformative and inspiring program to young pupils across the U.K. with Nintendo Switch,” said Kalpesh Tailor, the head of communications at Nintendo U.K. “In the past year our partnership has reached over 10,000 pupils and 1000 teams in schools & colleges across the U.K. with the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Team Battle tournament.”

It is unclear when these events will take place. A starting date and location for the tournament series have not yet been revealed.
