Curro eSports partners with Acer
Curro Holdings, in partnership with Acer for Education, has launched Curro’s own eSports gaming platform in South Africa. Utilising help and expert guidance from Acer, our innovative new platform reassures parents with an extra layer of cyber security to ensure learners’ safety while playing online video game tournaments as part of the our pioneering eSports programme.
Until now, learners playing any of the tournaments, including Apex Legends and Minecraft Squad, as well as traditional eSports games like Rocket League, have not had a central space to view information. The new Acer platform allows teams to view their rankings and also makes it possible for coaches to manage players, coordinate tournaments and allow communication between players and their coaches.
The tournaments are live-streamed via Twitch which means everyone gets to watch.
Our eSports programme has already registered more than 1,900 learners from across 38 of the group’s primary and 28 of the group’s high schools since its launch in 2020.
“We are amazed at how quickly our eSports programme has taken off. Our parents now understand that eSports is not just about playing video games as an extramural activity, but in fact, provides an entire world of opportunity for our learners, as an integrated part of our curriculum,” says Angela Schaerer, Digital Transformation Manager at Curro Holdings.
