- League of Legends
- Rainbow Six Siege
- Rocket League

Amazon isn't curating the event either. University students are taking charge as they earn valuable experience organising events. With the support of Amazon, this event will be an exciting one.
Amazon University Esports Tournament dates
Amazon will begin the tournament in the next few days. July 11 will be the date to get involved with the tournament and support the esports uni students.
The event will continue until August 18th when the winners for each game will be announced. NUEL's official Twitch account is where the games will be streamed.
Amazon has also stated that they are working with university societies in order to develop the amateur esports scene.
The schedule for the tournament is below. Amazon has also included separate women and non-binary matches. This creates a brilliant way for less represented player identities to be shown and highlighted for their strengths.
