Varsity Esports Team

Esports aren’t the future, they’re the present.

Since its establishment in the early 2000’s, professional, varsity and club esports has seen rapid growth in both participation and viewership. The 2020 League of Legends World Championship has broken more viewership records, with at least five matches from its first stage surpassing one million viewers, according to digital streaming data published by Esports Charts.

What is Esports? 

Esports describes the world of competitive, organized video gaming. Competitors from different leagues or teams face off in the same games that are popular with at-home gamers: Fortnite, League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Overwatch and Madden NFL, to name a few. These gamers are watched and followed by millions of fans all over the world, who attend live events or tune in on TV or online. Streaming services like Twitch allow viewers to watch as their favorite gamers play in real time, and this is typically where popular gamers build up their fandoms.
