Bandai Namco UK and ESL UK announce Tekken 7 UK Championship Series
The UK Tekken community has been asking for something major to take place in their part of the world for quite some time, and it has finally happened. Bandai Namco UK and ESL UK (Electronic Sports League) have announced a partnership that will bring a Tekken 7 UK Championship series to the UK and Ireland. Each week throughout April and May this “Tekken Tour” will bring a Tekken 7 tournament to a major city. The top 3 of each event will qualify for the finals taking place on the ESL Arena at MCM London Comic Con on May 26.

It’s exciting to see ESL get behind Tekken 7 because they’re a the largest eSports organization in the world. This could have major implications in the very near future. So big ups to Edwin Chuah and the rest of the Bandai Namco UK team for pulling this together. Hopefully we’ll hear more news like this for the Tekken community in the weeks, months, and years to come. We have no desire in seeing this eSports train slow down.
