Fresno State goes digital with esports program

A new competitor in the Mountain West is on its way to Fresno State, bringing new opportunities for students.

A varsity esports program is currently in development. The esports program will first out with a League of Legends team, and if there is enough student interest, the program will expand into more video game franchises such as Rocket League and Overwatch.

“We will more than likely, depending on interest, expand our varsity team,” said associate dean of Student Involvement Dr. Colin Stewart. “We have a process in place for that.”

If everything is on schedule, Stewart says that the process of assembling the team will begin sometime in October with open tryouts for all positions such as coaches and players.
