SKEMA to host e-sports competition for business schools

Published on 29 January 2020

SKEMA Business School will host the first edition of the League of Legends French Cup of Business Schools, an e-sports competition organised by Riot Games France with support from SKEMA. 

​After the success of “La Grosse Ligue”, the official League of Legends strategy games competition for French students, Riot Games France is once again bringing together e-sports and students by organising the French Cup of Business Schools in partnership with the Business School Sports Association (BSSA).

This new championship is specifically aimed at business schools, as there are many in La Grosse Ligue. It is an opportunity for schools to compete against each other to win the title of best school in League of Legends.

Franck Luccisano, in charge of sports at SKEMA Business School’s Sophia Antipolis campus, said: “Our school is proud to be hosting the first edition of this competition. Like many other schools that are members of the BSSA, SKEMA takes an interest in the e-sports ecosystem, in its rise and in the new possibilities it brings for our students. Our idea is to train them in the workings of this industry while developing personal qualities that can be carried over to their future careers. In a world that is turning digital at breakneck speed, more and more e-sports start-ups are emerging and an increasing number of companies are seeking to recruit people able to adapt to this ecosystem. After the launch of multi-campus classes online that are massively popular with our students, it seemed logical for our school to champion this innovative and trailblazing project.”

The best team in each business school will be qualified via the regional stage of La Grosse Ligue. The winning teams will then participate in a qualifying round online to determine who will make it into the “Final 6” that will go head to head in this French Cup on 28 and 29 March at SKEMA’s Sophia Antipolis campus.
