Mizzou is the first University in the SEC to join the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) and has invested into esports like few schools have, and because of that we offer a D-1 experience that no other esports program in the country can match. Our teams practice and compete in the 5,000-square-foot MSI Training Facility on campus, one of the largest university facilities in the nation. Our scholarship players compete in Overwatch, Rocket League, and League of Legends, and have seen great success since beginning competition in August 2019. Rocket League won the NACE Rocket League Championship in Atlanta in November 2019, Overwatch was one of 12 teams to be invited to compete in the Tespa Varsity Invitational last fall, and League of Legends is competing in the RSAA-sanctioned Midwest Esports Conference.
Donations to Mizzou Esports will fund student scholarships, team travel, and future development of the program.
