The competition, now in its sixth year, will be held at the McComas Hall Theater. Doors will open at 10 a.m. and the first match will begin at 11 a.m. A live stream of the event can be found at www.twitch.tv/esports_msu, starting at 10:30 a.m. The event is open to the public and parking is available outside the venue.

The day will consist of approximately 35 members from the MSU Esports club competing in seven games: Overwatch 2, Smite, Rocket League, Counter-Strike 2, League of Legends, Valorant, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

“Video games are already competitive, but playing against our rivals adds an extra dynamic. Being in person makes it even more intense,” said Colin Klein, a senior software engineering major from Milan, Tennessee and the President of MSU Esports.

Esports has experienced significant growth globally over the past decade. In 2021, the industry generated approximately $243 million in revenue in the U.S., according to data from Statista. The MSU Esports club not only provides a platform for competitive gaming, but also a community for like-minded students.

“Our club welcomes anyone who enjoys playing or watching video games. Gaming has a strong community aspect, especially when playing online with friends,” said Ethan Carey, a senior electrical engineering major from Brandon and the Treasurer of MSU Esports.
