About Marietta College eSports

Marietta College eSports LogoThe Marietta College eSports program is a new club sport that began in the fall of 2018. The club is open to any Marietta College student who has an interest in competitive gaming. Players of all abilities may join any of the eSports teams, and multiple teams may be formed for any game if there are enough players. Currently, the eSports program has official teams in League of Legends, Overwatch, Rocket League, and Fortnite. Teams for other games will be formed if there is enough interest. Students who do not have an interest in gaming may still participate in eSports by helping the program with managing the eSports arena, broadcasting matches, and organizing events.

The eSports teams compete in a variety of collegiate tournaments and leagues organized by Riot Games, CStarLeague, Tespa, and AVGL. All matches are livestreamed on Marietta College's Twitch channel and later uploaded to YouTube. These tournaments are not categorized by division. This means Marietta College competes nationally against schools such as Alabama, Iowa State, Louisville, and Ohio State.  Marietta College is also a member of the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), which is the governing body of competitve collegiate eSports and has over 130 members.

eSports Arena

The Marietta College eSports arena is one of the newest facilities on campus. The 570 sq. ft. arena is located inside The Gathering Place and contains 12 high-end gaming PCs, monitors, desks, and chairs. The arena is currently available to all official eSports players for practices and matches.  However, it will be available to all Marietta College students in the future. Eventually, fans will be able to attend live matches at The Gathering Place. These matches will be open to the community.
