Help support UAFS's new eSports program! The UAFS Digital Lions eSports Program is a budding initiative in student retention, built around the promising development of esports teams across colleges and universities. Funding this project not only aids student retention and recruitment, but it helps to support a program that benefits students involved in a multitude of ways: fostering teamwork, building interpersonal and group communication, time management, organization, and problem-solving skills, as well as physical and mental benefits such as enhancing hand-eye coordination, attention spans, and visual processing.

About our Program

We are an inclusive organization that strives to offer a fun community for gamers who range from casual to competitive. We focus on games available for competitive eSports based on the demands and requests from students such as League of Legends, Valorant, Smash Bros, and Pokemon. We are always looking for new and interested students to show their skills and express their interest. Thus, if we don’t play a game you may be competitive in let us know and get involved so we can look into adding you and your team to the program!

Funds will be used in several ways, first and foremost to purchase personalized uniforms for students who make one of the four planned eSports teams within the program. Beyond that, we will use funds to supplement equipment needs, pay for tournament registration and travel, and supplies for our eSports lab. 

eSports are a billion-dollar competitive video gaming industry, with tournaments/matches that take place on the local, national, and global scale. Public and private universities across the country have recognized the potential of this new collegiate sport and UAFS intends to be the first in our area.

Additional funding will help us grow and support the program so that we are able to offer better scholarships and support for the students on our teams. We also have additional recruiting and retention power with the program, as we have already piqued the interest of local college-bound high school students involved with their respective school eSports teams. 

Stay Connected eSports!
