Abu Dhabi set to host Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports Masters

Students from the UAE are ready to represent their country and seek victory at the Grand Finals of the third edition of Amazon UNIVERSITY Esports Masters (Amazon UE Masters), where they will battle against their rivals from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Morocco in two video games, League of Legends and VALORANT.

The esports tournament for college students will take place on July 5 and 6 at Pixoul Gaming, a state-of-the-art gaming complex located in Abu Dhabi. The hosting of this competition is part of a collaboration agreement between the Emirates Esports Federation and MENATech Entertainment (tournament’s organizer) to encourage initiatives linked to the world of video games and technology in the university environment.

Key data of the competition
The UAE will be represented in the upcoming edition of Amazon UE Masters by two collegiate teams, which previously passed the Qualifying and Play-Off phases: “Kamikaze UAE”, in League of Legends, and “PifThePaf UAE”, in VALORANT, will fight for the victorious title.

“Kamikaze UAE” will play against students of Saudi Arabia’s “Team Bismillah KSA” to become champions at the League of Legends Grand Final of Amazon UE Masters.

On the other hand, the competitive format will be different in VALORANT, involving teams from the four countries represented (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Morocco). To be crowned as winners of this year’s edition, “PifThePaf UAE” will have to overcome a final phase, which includes Semifinals and the Grand Final.

The two UAE teams are made up of students from six universities across the country: Higher Colleges of Technology, United Arab Emirates University, Ajman University, University of Wollongong in Dubai, Rochester Institute of Technology of Dubai, and Zayed University.

All the clashes can be watched live on the Amazon UE Masters official Twitch channel (twitch.tv/uemasters).
