Today Team Singularity are excited to share our plans for NLC 2022.
We are aware that there’s been numerous rumors recently, and we can confirm that we have thoroughly explored all of our options ahead of making any final decisions before the next season.
We are proud to announce that we have officially partnered up with the University of Roehampton, and have created a team structure to provide opportunities for young aspiring athletes to thrive in a competitive environment, gaining valuable experience from professional coaching at high level while also completing a degree.
Together we are stronger, and the partnership will provide a great opportunity to create a framework for players to thrive, it is also in line with our increased general academy and path2pro focus in Team Singularity.
“I’m very excited for this partnership opportunity and I believe that it aligns perfectly with our short- and long-term vision within Team Singularity. This year has been weird in the NLC as we’ve had more offseason than on-season, and even though we have had good results and has been close to go all the way to EUM, we unfortunately weren’t able to do ourselves justice and walk the line.Atle S. Stehouwer, Founder & CEO, Team Singularity
I’m confident in our new framework for the team operation within the NLC and what we’ll be able to bring to the table in 2022. We are limiting ourselves quite heavily in terms of the talent pool that we are looking to work with as it’s being limited to being players within a university education, but we believe that the pros outweigh the cons here and can’t wait to show our overall setup.”
James Ayres, Sport and Active Communities Manager at The University of Roehampton said:
“We are delighted to be working with Team Singularity for the NLC 2022. The University has been committed to supporting our student community through a range of opportunities within the esports industry and this exciting initiative demonstrates the important role higher education has in developing talent within esports. This, along with other initiatives such as our Women in Esport scholarships and career pathway programmes continue to showcase the role we can play in developing the new generation of esports talent.”James Ayres, Sport and Active Communities Manager, The University of Roehampton
The University of Roehampton was the first university in the UK to introduce an esports scholarship in 2018. Since then, the University has also introduced a Women in Games Scholarship, aimed at breaking down barriers for entry into the gaming industry and expanded its esports arena. stu
The University of Roehampton’s Esports Coordinator, Pedro Aguiar said:
“This project came about very suddenly, as soon as we got it I knew this would be a once in a lifetime opportunity so we just had to take it We decided that this would be a great opportunity to highlight not just Roehampton but all the talent from universities across the UK, making this a university esports all-stars team to compete against some of the best aspiring talent in the Nordic region. I hope this project can highlight grassroot esports and showcase some of the talent it has to offer. Shining a light could lead to more scouts and more opportunities for young esports athletes who still want to pursue a higher education degree.”Pedro Aguiar, Esports Coordinator, The University of Roehampton
