The Minecraft Collegiate League (MCCL) is a grassroots project designed to bring Minecraft into esports in the UK.
Our aim is to come together with other UK based colleges to start a Minecraft community of builders and PvP lovers. Each college will build their own ‘home arena’ where they can do battle across a number of PvP game modes made popular by Minecraft.
The MCCL is a collaborative effort of staff from Cambridge Regional College, Coventry College and Queen Mary’s College Basingstoke to allow our students who love the designing, building and competitive elements of Minecraft to get involved in esports in a new and original way.
Using the students of each of our colleges, as well as students from Exeter College, we collected data to find out what they would like to see in a Minecraft esports competition. We have based the design and structure of the MCCL off these findings to ensure that as many people can enjoy and get involved with this project as possible.
