“Having a friend that went to Leicester for his University course, he would often tell me about the development of DMU Esports and their focus towards esports and just having fun with friends playing games. DMU offers a safe place where you can meet new friends, experience different lifestyles whilst being surrounded by other gamers. If there was one of these local to me, I would be spending a lot of time there!”Curtis Bottomley, CGO & Academy Manager at Team Singularity
