Mizzou is the 3rd Power 5 School and first SEC school to join the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) and we are investing heavily into esports like no other school. The team will practice and compete in more than 5,000 square feet of dedicated space in Center Hall, making it one of the largest university gaming facilities in the nation. Our scholarship teams will compete in Overwatch, Rocket League, and League of Legends in the inaugural year.
Mizzou Esports offers a Division I and SEC experience that no other esports program in the country can match. As a Tier 1 and AAU research university, we have the IT infrastructure and budget to offer the best gaming experience possible with current technology.
Esports is the fastest growing sport with a global audience reaching almost 500 million fans annually. The program will be led by head coach and general manager Kevin Reape. Reape has been at Mizzou since 2010, first as a student and then as a staff member in Student Affairs.
Mizzou Esports is developing the greatest program in the country, and to do that we need the best players, content creators, streamers, casters, and so much more. If you think you would be a good fit for our program, complete our interest form.
