The e-Lig University series continues to build momentum with the introduction of an All-Female league competition. Each University will present a female player who will compete in the female division with an aim add more females in Esports. The numbers of females participating in Ace Pro Gaming competitions is at a staggering 6% in the Tekken254 Circuit and 0% in FIFA.
“We believe adding an all-female competition for the e-Lig University series will help grow the participation of women in Kenya’s Esport scene,” says Jairus Ogembo, Head of Marketing at Ace Pro Gaming. The all-female competition will be crucial to the series as it will have 6 representatives from each University playing for points that will be tallied in the final aggregate points at the end of the series.
Kenyatta University franchised Esport organization “Horsemen” has sent their female participant Bree Obea who will be joined by University of Nairobi’s “Horizon Organization” player Tamara. The female section is slowly picking up and will see a full competition with four more participants from the registered teams. The ladies will play in a round robin format giving them an opportunity to play against everyone in the conference to gauge their competitiveness levels in the series.
The e-Lig University series will see a total of six University playing in the inaugural season which is dubbed Season 0.
