Goal 2 has teamed up with Fresno Unified’s Technology Department to develop an eSports league to bring focus to a new lucrative and developing industry. An eSports league well help foster curiosity with technology, STEM as well as provide a direct career path.
The league will be comprised of teams involving Fresno Unified School District’s high schools. Teams will compete in weekly online scrimmages which will help in seeding the team for the main tournament. The main tournament will also allow other school districts to submit teams as well.
Check out the success of FUeL’s first tournament.
ESports is much more than a club. According to National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), currently there are more than 200 colleges and universities in the United States and Canada actively recruiting and offering scholarships for eSports athletes — universities like UC Irvine, Indiana Tech and the University of Utah to name a few. The opportunities for college scholarships are growing each year. Like the Personal Computer, eSports gaming is an engagement opportunity that is dynamic and growing every day
