Wolves Esports, which is the video game arm of the Wolverhampton Wanderers soccer team, recently unveiled a partnership with the University of Wolverhampton. This deal will see the two parties host a watch party for the 2021 Le Mans Virtual Series.
The Wolverhampton Screen School will also be launched. This $6.74 million initiative aims to boost the skills of digital artists and online media members. Wolves Esports’ events were broadcast live at the school on September 25th.
“We are so excited to welcome visitors to our brand-new Screen School in support of this fantastic global event as we work in partnership with Wolves Esports,” said Tim Steele, Pro Vice-Chancellor International at the University of Wolverhampton. “We are always proud to support our local team — especially when they’re competing internationally and putting Wolverhampton on the map and we hope that this will be the first of a number of high profile events as we look to establish the City of Wolverhampton as a key destination in the developing esports arena.”
The University of Wolverhampton is a public school located in England. The higher-education institution reportedly has a little over 20,000 students.
