THE BIG OPPORTUNITY: Why Esports for Your Institution?


Esports is a great platform for student engagement, involvement, community, and retention.


  • If you look at the percentage of high school students who are gamers, and those who simply watch esports, you realize it’s a central part of their lives now. Pew Research found in 2018 that 90% of teens (ages 13-17) play video games. Among boys of that age, the percentage is 97%


  • From a social standpoint, esports is more inclusive than other sports, with men and women able to play on the same teams and participants coming from various social groups and demographics.


  • Another consideration is that students who are interested in esports have a higher tendency to be academic achievers and are interested in higher paying STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) fields.

YOUR STUDENTS' NEXT ESPORTS OPPORTUNITIES:

COLLEGIATE ASPIRATIONS


  • Most college campuses now have esports clubs and many have competitive teams. It is estimated that around 240 colleges are now offering approximately $15 million in scholarships.


  • About 450 colleges and universities and 10,000 students participate via competitive teams in the NACE Starleague


  • Esports curriculum and career pathways are growing rapidly. Several colleges are now offering academic esports programs (degrees, minors, certificates, etc.). This movement is similar to the rise of sports management degrees over the past several decades.
