Top Tips - UKeSA Managers & Teams
Posted by SmellyMoss on Jan 27th 2009 14:05
There is a lot of uncertainty on who can and can't compete in the UKeSA Leagues and Cups. Well, here is the lowdown.
A team is eligible only if:
A. The Manager holds IP ownership of the team AND is British and UK based.
B. The team is a UK Limited company.
Option A: The Manager holds IP ownership of the team AND is British and UK based.
This is pretty straight forward. The manager must hold a UK passport and be based in the UK. They must also control the Intellectual Property of the team they manage. This as simple as registering your team on Enemy Down and making sure that it's an original team name.
Option B: The team is a UK Limited company.
This is a little more complicated. The manager of a team that is a registered UK Limited Company does NOT need to be British. However, the team must be a UK based company. The easiest way to find out if a team is registered as a UK Limited company is through Companies House.
UKeSA does NOT require teams to be register as UK Limited companies.
UK Team Ltd Company Examples: Team Dignitas (Team Dignitas Ltd), Infused Gaming (Infused UK Ltd), Reason Gaming (Reason Gaming UK Ltd)
Teams should also keep in mind that they MUST compete on UK servers.
