Here, the best young players from South London gathered to battle it out for glory.

The journey began back in December as we embarked upon hosting our 12 free-to-enter tournaments held at various youth clubs right across South London. The EYC team have had over 150 talented and

passionate young gamers come through, providing them with a platform to showcase their skills and passion for competitive gaming. The EYC Cup has once again proved to be a testament to the demand for a safe space for young people to socialise and compete whilst gaming.

As the day unfolded, the atmosphere was buzzing with vibes. The competition was fierce, with skilled gamers from across South London converging to display their prowess, in first-to-21, 3v3 matches on Blacktop.

The intense showdown between them showcased not only their exceptional skills but also their remarkable sportsmanship. It was a sight to behold, as they demonstrated the true spirit of competition and friendship.

Finally, let's not forget the enticing rewards awaiting the winners. The champion of the 2023 EYC Cup - NBA 2K was bestowed with a stunning, brand new Bulls Jordan jersey, while the runner-up took home an impressive HyperX headset. These prizes, along with the everlasting memories and the validation of their gaming abilities, will undoubtedly fuel their passion for esports and can inspire them to reach new heights whatever path they choose.

The EYC Cup has left an indelible mark on the South London youth scene. The event showcased the incredible talent, dedication, and sportsmanship of the region's young gamers.

A special shoutout goes to the incredible team at 2K Games for hosting the tournament and making it a memorable experience for all.
