Esports and Gaming at the University of Missouri
Esports is a form of sport competition using video games, often taking the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions. The industry is growing exponentially with amateur, high school, collegiate, and professional teams now competing across the globe. Mizzou Esports launched in August 2019 and supports varsity rosters for the games Rocket League, Overwatch, League of Legends and Valorant. Our teams practice and compete in the 5,000-square-foot training facility on campus, one of the largest university gaming facilities in the nation. We have traveled across the country to compete on-stage at other universities and at events like DreamHack Atlanta, where we won the 2019 Rocket League NACE Championship. Our program has always maintained an average 3.0+ GPA in the classroom.
