We are excited to announce the launch of collegiate esports in fall 2019. The varsity esports team will compete as a member of the National Association of Collegiate esports (NACE), the governing body for esports. The college will initially compete in three games including Overwatch, League of Legends and Rocket League.

esports is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Students who join our esports team will have the opportunity to pursue their passion for gaming while earning a degree in one of our 150+ industry driven programs.

Where We Play

The teams will compete and practice in a brand new, state of the art esports arena currently under construction at the NTC Wausau campus. The 1,200 square foot arena will feature 24 high end gaming computers, chairs and desks. The space will also feature a 98” TV for reviewing film as a team, as well as a three additional 55” TVs with console gaming stations for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. A broadcast room will be attached to the arena for casters and analysts to live stream and commentate on games. When not being used by the varsity esports team, the space will be available to student groups, local K-12 districts and other community organizations.
