Vikes Athletics and Recreation - Vikes Esports Assoc.


Get your consoles ready, warm up those fingers and start gaming with Vikes Esports. UVic is offering competitive sports online through league play and tournaments.

The Vikes Esports Association is a student-led program under Vikes Active Living with the goal of building a community for gamers across campus and beyond while leveraging that community to help turn UVic into an esports powerhouse. Help us build towards creating an on-campus gaming lounge, send varsity teams to compete across Canada, and offer competitive scholarships for esports athletes.

For an idea of upcoming events, check the schedule below or join our Discord server and let us know what kind of games you would like to see in the future (either in terms of casual or competitive play). We are always happy to take suggestions if there’s community interest in a game we’re not currently running. One of the core priorities of the program is to provide a space for students and their friends to get together and play the games they want to play.
