The Blue and White entity has reached an agreement with UCAM Esports Club to participate in the fourth campaign of LaLiga’s official esports competition, with FIFA 21 as the flagship videogame and protagonist for another year.

For the Universidad Católica de Murcia, this collaboration agreement is a big step forward in bolstering its commitment to electronic sports. For a number of years, UCAM’s triple objective in terms of esports brings together teaching, research and competition. Present at the signing event were José Luis Mendoza and Samuel Mendoza, Director of Institutional Relations and Director of Infrastructure and Digital Development at UCAM respectively; accompanied by Carlos Arias and Ana Vera, head of the Business and General Services Department and the Institutional Relations Department of Málaga CF, respectively.

UCAM Esports will make its coach and players available to Málaga CF, including Pablo ‘Brutaker’ Naveira, a professional FIFA player.
