After-school activities of The Sims 4 e-sports competitor

Being a university student in The Sims 4 is a lot of work, but it doesn't just have to be about completing classwork and doing homework. You can join certain teams and organisations that will allow your sims to have fun and make new friends.

There are two after school activities that have been added to the game, we have the football team player and the e-sports competitor. These extracurricular activities are only available to a sim currently enrolled at university.

How to join the E-Sports team

Participating as an eSports competitor in The Sims 4 is equivalent to finding a job. You can use your phone or computer to find a job and it will be at the bottom of the careers list, just before the part-time jobs.

You can also go to the arena on the campus of your school and click on the building and choose join the e-sports team.

Levels of being an e-sports competitor

There are four levels of the e-sports competitor at university, and growing as a player will benefit your sim in a different way and perhaps even give him a guaranteed job after finishing school.

Member of the training team

When you join the football team, you will have a daily task to complete and also skill levels for your sim to complete before you can move on to the next step. Before you can move on to the next stage of this activity after school, your sim must:

Reach video game level 3

They also have the daily task of playing Sims Scuffle which you can do alone or with members of your team.

To reach level 3 of the video game skill, your sim will have to play video games on a computer, a TV game system or using a gaming mat. Since you'll be on campus, it's probably easiest to just use a computer.


As a substitute in the e-sports team, your sim will have to research simsscuffle techniques and also play simsscuffle. Both of these activities can easily be performed on the computer.

They will have to increase by two skill levels:

  • Reach charisma level 2
  • Reach video game level 6

In order to acquire the skill charisma, your sim can talk to other sims or can practise a speech in the mirror. You might also want to take a skills course for §250 Charisma at the university.

You can continue to acquire skills in video games in the same way, preferably on the computer.


Your sim will just have to keep playing simsscuffle every day and also try some techniques to improve in the game. They must also improve this skill:

  • Reach charisma level 4

You can continue to increase your sim's charismatic ability by talking to other sims or by making a speech in the mirror.


Your sim is now at the highest level of being an e-sports competitor, now he only has to participate in its meetings and events.

At this point, your sim might even get sponsorship from an energy drink brand. This is hilarious to me because many players have been sponsored by companies like Red Bull or Monster Energy in real life.

E-sports programme

If you are part of the e-sports team, you will spend a lot of time training throughout the week. You will practice on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 18:00 to 22:00.

You will also have two events per week on both Fridays and Saturdays from 18:00 to 22:00. This is a huge time commitment!

E-sports events

There are two e-sports events every week that your sim can participate in. They take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 5pm. On Friday, the event will take place at Britechester Arena and on Saturday the event will take place at Foxbury Institute.

Any sim who is not a member of the team can pay §45 to participate in the event as a nice thing to do at weekends. You can come and see the event if you are not even a student!

You can bring future players to this event as children and have a nice thing to do as a family.

Becoming an eSport player

If you manage to get your sim to the level of captain of an e-sports competitor, you will actually get a career advancement if they join the Tech Guru career.

Your sim will skip most of the career and start in the eSports Gamer branch, earn much more money per hour in the career and have more time for holidays.

Final thoughts

Being part of the e-sports team is a good option if your sim has time, sims who want to get an A at school will not really have time to participate in this kind of activity.

This is ideal for a sim with 2-3 classes who have a little extra time to have fun and make friends with their teammates!
