UOP E-Sports society is an organisation run by students of Portsmouth University, first established in November 2018. UOP E-Sports society currently has a total of 134 members and is the university's third-largest common interest group despite only starting 10 months ago.
UOP E-Sports society, also known as The Portsmouth Paladins was created to give students a chance to compete in E-Sporting events within the University scene, the society provides a network and platforms for students to compete in national events.
The Portsmouth Paladins compete in both the Nuel and NSE which are both university E-Sports leagues. Novatech will also be sponsoring this year's Big Game, taking place between the 1st - 3rd November 2019. The Big Game is an annual gaming event that takes place 3 times a year and this year the UOP E-sports society will also be attending the event too.
Novatech are proud to be the official sponsor for the Portsmouth Paladins, where this year we teamed up with the society at the Portsmouth university freshers fair providing an insight into our new Reign Gaming PC range and all the best gaming equipment. We also provided the UOP E-Sports society with gaming equipment for their stand for students to have a hands-on experience before deciding to join the society.
Here at Novatech we have been working with the Portsmouth Paladins for just over 12 months now, supporting them through providing their members with PCs at Insomnia65 Gaming Festival as well as providing PCs and kit to run at offical NUEL events . We are also looking forward to working closely with them at this year's Big Game event in Southampton, with lots more exciting opportunities coming soon.

Desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) is far from a new concept. In fact, it has roots as far back as the late 1960s when IBM was utilising mainframes to centralise processing. This concept was expanded on with the client-server model in the 1990s before being super-charged by the more powerful servers and fibre-optic broadband connections of the 21st century.
