Student association JUSTICE E-sports competed during Dreamhack

Between 25–28 November, Dremhack Winter 2021 took place at Elmia in Jönköping and the student association JUSTICE E-sports from Jönköping University successfully competed in several of the tournaments during the festival.

Since 2016, Jönköping University has a student association created for students, by students that is aimed at persons interested in e-sports on all levels. Their goal is to make everyone feel welcome to the association, no matter if the interest in e-sports is on a causal or professional level. During Dreamhack Winter 2021, around 30 players from JUSTICE participated.

”Generally, it was a fantastic meeting, and since this for many of the members was the first Dreamhack it was a great experience and we already look forward to competing during the next Dreamhack," says Adam, one of the board members of JUSTICE E-sports.

The goal for the student association is to ride on the e-sport wave that is currently sweeping over the world, to recruit more members and form a meeting place with a great community for students interested in e-sports. In the future, they hope to be one of the leading associations in e-sports with a strong competing team for students. During Dreamhack, the members of JUSTICE got to meet other e-sports associations, network, and engage with other e-sports enthusiasts also offline, outside the gaming environment.

"Some of the members were also invited to a mingle with the Swedish E-sports Association (Svenska E-sportförbundet) where we got to network and mingle with other stakeholders within the Swedish e-sports community," says Adam.
