Our Program

Mizzou is the 3rd Power 5 School and first SEC school to join the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) and has invested heavily into esports like few schools have. Mizzou Esports offers a Division I and SEC experience that no other esports program in the country can match. Our teams 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 players compete in Overwatch, Rocket League, and League of Legends.

The program is 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.


2019 NACE Rocket League National Champions

Mizzou Rocket League defeated Aquinas College 4-1 on November 17, 2019 at DreamHack Atlanta to complete an undefeated season and secure the program’s first National Championship.
