The Gaming Knights Story

 

Gaming Knights was formed in 2013 as a merger between LAN Knights (formed in 2002) and Console Knights (formed in 2012). GK is an inclusive organization that aims to promote the social aspect of gaming, including gamers of PC, Console, Board/Tabletop, and all other methods of playing.

We host a wide variety of events, including LANs, Board Game Nights, Bowling Nights, and more! For our upcoming events, click here.

  • The first and currently only school-sponsored esports sport club within the state of Florida

In 2018, Gaming Knights became an official sport club at UCF, and the only collegiate school-sponsored club within the state of Florida. Since then, we’ve taken in different games, teams, and players under our umbrella to help promote and grow the collegiate esports scene. Going forward, we aim to continue this growth while having our teams recognized on a national level.
