Welcome to

Welcome to the official website of Sujoy Roy, the UK's first and most successful professional video gamer.

The Gamer

A straight A student, Sujoy read Physics at Cambridge University and earned a Masters degree in Physics before taking a slick city job at JP Morgan, working in Wall Street, New York. Despite the pay and perks of the bank job the daily grind didn't suit this hardcore gamer and before long he had quit his job to become the UK's first professional gamer. With international sponsorship and endorsement deals, Sujoy travelled the world competing in major Quake tournaments. Sujoy set the benchmark for professional gamers around the world with clever promotional campaigns for his sponsors, generating media exposure unheard of in the industry. The collection of clippings and radio/television appearances in 2000 and 2001 are available for viewing on this site.

The Architect

Since retiring as a professional gamer, Sujoy has been helping build the concept of ESports by creating communities (ESReality, IGUK), organising tournaments (Cyberathlete Professional League, World Cyber Games, GameStars, Acon), and building World class gaming stadiums. Sujoy also managed the London franchise for the Championship Gaming Series, and led them to victory in the UK finals for a TV show aired on Sky One.

In December 2007, Sujoy launched Gamerbase; a high-tech gaming entertainment company with its first venue in the London Trocadero. Following an incredible year for Gamerbase the company was acquired in October 2008 by international entertainment retail chain, HMV. As part of HMV, Sujoy has launched three further Gamerbase venues in Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh, and eighty smaller gaming console pods in HMV stores across the UK and Ireland.
