New Leaf eSports was founded in July 2019 by the team behind Embrace The Change, a UK-based Mario Kart 8 Deluxe local tournament. The success of this event led us to believe we could do more than just run tournaments, having met people who like us were passionate about the game itself, challenging the common public perception of video games as a hobby and meeting people with like-minded interests.

We have seen other games come centre stage in major tournaments and believe that Mario Kart can also stand up there with the likes of Super Smash Bros., Tekken, and League of Legends to name a few. We aim to be able to take the already flourishing online competitive setting of Mario Kart and take it offline – providing competitive events where people can test the mettle against some of the best in the world. Additionally, we wish to have fun – hosting side events, social outings after tournaments, building a community are all things we are very passionate about.

We also aim to work to raise money towards supporting organisations dealing with the negative effects that gaming can have on individuals when done in an unhealthy manner. Giving money to charities such as Mind UK can support the increasing number of institutes and rehabilitation centres across the UK helping people that suffer with gaming addiction – a disorder recognised by the World Health Organisation as of mid-2018.

We want to build bridges between people, and help those who need it to turn a new leaf. If you’re interested in becoming involved or supporting us, please contact us!
