Fairplay is the e-sports association for students in Groningen. In cooperation with the ACLO, we want to promote competitive e-sports and above all have fun doing so. That’s why we organize trainings and competitions, but also more relaxed activities.

At this point we organize training sessions and competitions for Super Smash Bros Ultimate as well as Smash Melee. Those interested in these game are guided to improve their game. We also keep an eye out for other e-sports and if there’s enough of an interest, we would like to do something with them. Other games will also be available during our weekly nights, LAN-parties and other activities. We have an active discord community as well which allows us to also keep fans of other games we might host in the future up to date on our progress

With our association we are establishing a community. Everyone interested in (social) gaming and competition is more than welcome! You can come and join one of our weekly nights to get a feeling for how things go for up till 3 times! You can beat your friends in a few friendly games, or make tons of new friends on one of our casual setups! There’s always something there for everyone and the best thing? These first times are free of charge, only after this we gently ask you to become a real (paying) member. By then paying the €30,00 yearly fee on top of your ACLO membership will be peanuts as you will not be able to go by one week without us! With your membership you’ll be able to attend all our events at a heavily reduced fee and be able to compete in our competition for nice prices! Last year the €30,00 membership gave more reduction during events and tournaments than the entire cost of the membership as a whole!? So don’t waste your money on venue fees for only our events, just come and join us for the entire ride!

As you can see there is simply too much to tell you. Just come by and see for yourselves, we’ll hope to see you there! Unless mentioned elsewhere, we come together on Wednesday in the lunchroom of the sports bar (Blauwborgje 16). You can find us between 19:30 – 22:30 and join us for an evening of fun and competition!



We regularly organize tournaments to promote e-sports. This includes both internal and external competition. On top of that, as Fairplay, we will participate in events in other parts of the country. We will also participate in other external events to show of our mad skills!

Weekly nights

Are you sick and tired of that one friend consistently beating you in some game, or are you the friend that is consistently beating your friends in some other game? Well, we can help both of you! Every week we organize an event. These events consist of educational nights, competition nights, casual nights and other special events. You can up your game during the educational nights, test your skills at a competition night, or simply relax a little and make some friends during one of the casual nights!


Fairplay represents a community of like-minded enthusiasts. We are settled in Groningen, but we are also in contact with other e-sports associations from all over the country.


Stay tuned…
