The 7th annual Inter-University Esports Championship (IUEC) by Gamer.LK and powered by Softlogic & the Dell Gaming Academy, concluded last month (July 2021) after some intense university-level Esports action. IUEC 2021 brought in more players than last year with over 1,100 registered participants from across 80 different universities and higher education institutions. This is the 2nd year that IUEC was held online fully due to the pandemic situation, but managed to nearly double its registered player numbers. This year’s IUEC also consisted of 170+ matches, which were played across 16 game titles spanning PC, console and mobile.

From all the universities which participated, only 1 was able to take home the title of IUEC ‘21 Champions – the University of Moratuwa. UOM managed to earn 5 medals (3 gold, 2 silver) throughout the entire competition, thanks to their lineup of amazing players.

While Dilshan “JP.MONTY” Gihan and Kaumini “PIK4CHU” Gunasinghe brought home silver medals in Call of Duty Mobile and Mario Kart Tour respectively.
