The Northumbria Vikings was born in 2018 after a number of unofficial efforts since 2015. Formerly under Northumbria Sport, Vikings are officially the esports society of the Northumbria Student Union and the only place for competitive gaming. Members have shared access to our own on-campus gaming lab where you can go and practice together with your teammates, after facilities are also available to watch games back and analyse your team performance.
For those more interested in streaming and casting games, we also host our own Northumbria Vikings twitch channel that is available for our members to stream onto.
In our society we create teams in various esports titles to compete in primarily the university leagues NSE and NUEL, a few of the titles we offer include, League of Legends, CSGO, Valorant, Overwatch and Dota 2. These teams also stretch across a wide spread of skills levels to include any player of any level into at least one of our teams. Competing in these leagues also allows us to run Riot partnered events that will run throughout the year such as Realms where we will be giving away various prizes, skins, plushies and other exclusive merch.
