26 Apr 2021
At the end of February this year, Klika signed a cooperation agreement with the University of Banja Luka and Tiltproof on the first University Esports League organization, in League of Legends.
Thus this spring Banja Luka students interested in video games got the opportunity to compete and represent their faculties in a unique competition that is in line with the world's latest trends. The league was organized in cooperation with three previously mentioned partners, and all faculties of the University of Banja Luka had the chance to participate.
“The University of Banja Luka has recognized the importance of Esports, an integral part of the gaming industry as the fastest growing industry today. We saw it as a potential for further development and modernization of approaches and work with students that could be useful in their future employment. We believe that our students should be given the opportunity to participate in competitions such as the Esports league which opens the door for their future engagement within the gaming industry”, said Anđela Pepić, MA and the Head of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology Transfer at the University of Banja Luka.
The University League hosted 10 faculties that compared their strengths during April, and after the finals, we got the first champion – Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Banja Luka. Tiltproof took over the organization of match broadcasting and technical support, while Klika provided the main prize.
Sergej Sliško, the CEO of Tiltproof, explained at the conclusion of the contract that Esport has been the norm at world universities for years at a level where faculties are struggling to attract the most talented gamers through quality gaming staff, equipment, and facilities that offer the latest technologies for the improvement of Esport skills
Vanja Babić, a representative of the Klika's office in Banja Luka, attended the contract signing on behalf of this company.
"Klika is a socially responsible company, for which young, talented people are one of the greatest values, and we are extremely proud to be part of a unique story in our area for the first time", said Vanja.
