Do you like burning rubber on Rocket League?

Whether you’re a n00b, a button masher or consider yourself the MVP, join us for an action-packed day in Scarborough on the 25th of June 2022.

As the official media partner for Armed Forces Day 2022, we’re bringing you the high-octane world of military esports LIVE.

We’re hosting our first ever esports exhibition tournament in a specially created esports arena at Scarborough Spa. There will be five teams from local schools, colleges, cadets and the community, going head-to-head against a team from each of the Army, Navy and RAF esport teams in fast-paced Rocket League matches.

Spectators will get the chance to play for themselves in a specially converted double-decker gaming bus as well as a Player’s Area in the arena itself. There you’ll be able to enter our King of the Hill competition, where the best players stand a chance of winning some really cool prizes.

Head of Social Media, Jackie Lerm, said:

“The BFBS Armed Forces Day Esports Exhibition Tournament is one of the highlights of our summer calendar this year. Working closely with the military esports teams has been hugely rewarding, and we’re really excited to have the opportunity to bring the exciting world of military esports to the public, including a whole new generation of young gamers and those interested in finding out more about life in the military.”

If you want to grab a cold drink, put your feet up, and soak up all the military banter between the services, you can find us at the Promenade Lounge from 12:30PM.
