On April 22 and 23, competitions were held for the best student teams of the Volga and Ural Federal Districts as part of the All-Russian Esports Student League, jointly organized by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Russian eSports Federation, the Presidential Grants Foundation and the Rosatom State Corporation.
In total, about 500 students and 18 winning teams of regional stages identified the best in five different sports disciplines and types of programs in the competition.This year, the KIU esports team for the third time became a participant in these competitions and for the first time in its history climbed a conditional podium, taking an honorable 3rd place. For comparison: in 2020 we took 6th place in the overall standings, in 2022 we took fourth place. Thus, every year we consistently improved our sports results and finally won medals. Such successes would not have been possible without the sports talents of our students, supported by systematic training, without the attention of the administration of the University, faculties and branches, without a strong material and technical base.
The greatest sports contribution to the "bronze" was made by the leader of the Clash Royale team Pardo Pineros Juan Felipe, who for the sixth time in one year fulfilled the requirements for conferring the first sports category, winning all the republican and interregional competitions in which he participated. It is significant that during this period Felipe played more than 40 official matches for the national team of our University, and won all of them. At the same time, more than half of the victories - with a "clean sheet". In yesterday's final, Felipe showed his best qualities, cold-bloodedly outplaying a strong opponent from UrFU.

Congratulations to the KIU esports team on an excellent sports result! We wish you new victories at the Russian Computer Sports Championship starting next weekend!
