Since the early 2000's, individuals from all over the world have competed professionally in video games, now known as "esports". Enabled by publishers like Riot Games and platforms like Twitch, esports have become a global phenomenon boasting more than 260 million viewers across a diverse audience and selling out world-famous stadiums all over the globe. Despite the enormous growth of professional esports, collegiate and high school esports are still largely underdeveloped.
Inspired by traditional sports, EGF's mission is to build a better version of the NCAA for esports in college and high school.
We work with administrators from colleges and high schools all over the US to build formalized esports programs, run the league those programs compete in, and produce esports media.
Gamers since we could hold controllers, our team has backgrounds in sports, esports, and higher education. We've been running tournaments under the EGF banner since 2013 and now we work with some of the biggest universities in the country on building the future for collegiate and high school esports.
