Florida Tech Esports
What is Esports?
Esports refers to electronic sports in the form of competitive video gaming. Esports is a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar industry spanning K-12, amateur, collegiate, and professional levels of competition, entertainment, and spectatorship. Esports competition typically consists of individuals but more often teams of a particular title going head-to-head at local and national events.
Esports at Florida Tech:
Florida Tech provides a dedicated esports facility, world-class academics, and knowledgeable esports staff and coaches that help our esports athletes develop and perform to the best of their abilities. Throughout the year, our teams will compete in collegiate and open leagues, seasons, and tournaments, as well as travel to live events. When not competing, our esports athletes are treated no differently than traditional athletes, and just like traditional athletics, our player’s practice, compete and develop critical teamwork skills that they can rely on later on in their careers.
