About eSports

Boise State hosts competitive videogame teams, as known as eSports, as an officially sanctioned varsity activity for undergraduate and graduate students. Teams are recruited and selected from current students who have part or full-time status at Boise State University. They compete in intercollegiate play as part of the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE).

Teams compete in the NACE regular season against member schools and selected tournaments from TESPA, uLOL, Collegiate Star League (CSL), and other organizations as part of the intercollegiate play. With more than 50 schools, Boise State competes nationally against schools like Utah, UC Irvine, Arizona State, Miami, and others including current and passed Collegiate League of Legends National Champions Maryville University and Robert Morris University.

Games selected for the inaugural eSports season include League of Legends, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and Rocket League. Other games will be added. When possible, Boise State eSports will host multiple teams in each game in a tiered system to allow for development, coaching, and advancement. When a tournament permits, multiple teams may participate. This is unique to eSports and creates the opportunity to build skills and expertise.
