65 teams took part in the competition — 265 schoolchildren from 29 educational institutions of the Kyiv region. On January 23, an official award ceremony was held for the championship winners.

From December 25 to January 10, an esports competition was held among school teams from the Kyiv region in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Brawl Stars. The championship was organized by the Kyiv Regional State Administration and the GG.ua tournament platform with the support of the Ukrainian Esports Federation (UESF). The event was developed as part of the overall strategy for the development of esports in Ukraine, aiming to introduce young people to the esports culture and give them the opportunity to express themselves and showcase their skills in this area.

Students of all educational institutions of the Kyiv region could take part in the championship. Each participating institution was represented by its strongest team in each discipline. Following the Group Stage, the teams with the best results moved on to the Finals, held according to the Olympic system (Single Elimination).

In total, 65 teams took part in the competition: 35 in CS:GO and 30 in Brawl Stars. A total of 193 matches were played. The winners were:

  • CS:GO: the team from the Boriv Academic Lyceum of the Fastiv City Council of the Kyiv Region.
  • Brawl Stars: the team from the Irpin Academic Lyceum of the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine of the Irpin City Council of the Kyiv Region.

The official awards ceremony was held on January 23 in Kyiv, in the DAN.IT education center hall. The participants received prizes from the organizers, as well as from the partner of the championship, hardware manufacturer Bloody, which provided the participants with professional gaming devices.

It took us a month to implement the event idea — it was all very fast. I hope that in the future, similar joint tournaments in different disciplines will be implemented just as efficiently. It is very important to further develop the community of esports players of Kyiv region, because for young people today it is a great opportunity to develop skills such as team thinking and leadership, and, of course, the opportunity to become a professional athlete.” says Denys Shugaliy, deputy chairman of the Kyiv Regional State Administration for digital development, digital transformations, and digitalization.
For our tournament platform, this was the first — and immediately very successful — experience of cooperation with government agencies in organizing esports championships. I am sure that future projects will be even bigger and better, and will bring about a positive dynamic in the development of Ukrainian esports,” says Oleksiy Nogin, head of the WePlay Compete and GG.ua tournament platforms.
