EGF started by running tournaments out of our dorm room in 2013 and since then we have leveraged our experience running hundreds of competitions for thousands of students all over the world to create the best possible experience for our schools and students.
Today, EGF is the governing body for collegiate (EGFC) and high school (EGFH) esports leagues - designed specifically for administratively endorsed programs - as the NCAA does for traditional sports.
In addition to overseeing esports competitions, EGF works with administrators at universities and high schools across the country to develop esports programs that create competitive teams, educational programming, and positive social impact.

EGFM is the home for all of EGF's media - broadcasting EGFH and EGFC matches and original content, producing league matches, championships, and conferences for EGF members. In addition, EGFM provides training for esports broadcasters and producers through EGFM's internal programs, and through partnerships with schools developing courses and degrees focused on esports media.
