EE Power Up Programme

In partnership with Excel Esports, we are supercharging the ambitions of women in gaming

What is Power Up?

We have been working with Excel Esports to supercharge women in gaming and esports. As well as establishing Excel Esports' first all-women Valorant team, we are hosting the first-ever all-women’s esports tournament at UK gaming festival, Insomnia71, this September. Our next step is an exciting 4 month talent development programme packed full of innovative opportunities to supercharge women Valorant players.
