about us

Our goal is to help facilitate and grow Scottish esports like it’s never been done before! Following the success of 3 seasons of the Scottish Esports League, we aim to continue our growth and allow more people to enjoy and participate in competitive gaming across Scotland. ​

After feeling a lack of infrastructure and cohesion across gaming in Scotland, James Hood founded Esports Scotland.

Now ESS is a team of 10+ people working constantly across events, tournaments, streams, content, social media, marketing and more, to make the goal of the company and thousands of people across Scotland come true!

what is esports?

Esports is a catch-all term for any kind of professional competitive gaming, whether individual or team-based. Esports players will sound off against each other in games like CSGO, League of Legends and Rainbow Six: Siege for example, to find who out is the best in the world.


Esports have been around since the very beginning of videogames growth into popularity. You could look at classic arcade high scores as the first form of esports, and has now grown into a multi-million-pound global industry with millions of fans all over the world who tune in to live streams with commentary or catch the highlights of matches.
