Jacob Mitchell started this petition to Murray State University

Murray State Esports(Racer Esports) has created a fantastic community of students on Murray State University's campus. It has facilitated student interaction, learning, and has given Murray State University a reputable place in the collegiate Esports scene. Our League of Legends team is currently undefeated in the Upsurge Esports tournament, Overwatch was ranked 11th nationally in the TESPA Overwatch Series, and Rocket League is currently undefeated in the Nashville Rocket League Series.

The Racer Esports community has been going for about a year and a half with only volunteer work. While it has worked in the past, the level of growth and interest in Esports on Murray State's campus is simply too great to sustain with volunteer work. We already have had to deny upcoming teams lab time, due to the limit of how many devices we have at our disposal and the amount of time we can allocate to each team.

In order for Racer Esports to grow and get even more national acclaim, we need to be fully funded by the university. We are seeking two full-time staff positions, an office and streaming/editing station, two student worker positions, and additional funding for a "Casual Lab" in the IT building. These additions will solidify Racer Esports as a strong force in the national collegiate esports scene.

Please sign if you want to see this be a reality!
