Videogames and Esports have gotten very popular throughout the year due the massive investments in the financial world that has allowed it to grow. Today, popular games such as League of Legends, Fortnite, Apex Legends, Overwatch amass hundreds of millions of viewers throughout each year, creating millions in revenues for the gaming industry. Can you believe that League of Legend Worlds 2019 Semifinal matchup between G2 and SKT has an all time peak of 3,985,787 viewers at one time. Thats crazy!! With the surge and popularity of the gaming industry, having courses related to Esports and gaming would be very useful at our University. Many professionals started their careers ever since they were young and the development of the Collegiate Esports facilitates this process of recruitment and training like any other sport does. Investments and experience in youth is very important to developing the transition into a more professional scene that encompasses management, finance and strategical thinking. Please sign the petition and lets get this approved!
