We're actively recruiting new players for our Rocket League, League of Legends and Overwatch varsity teams starting in fall 2020. Email Conner Vagle, our Esports General Manager, for more information about playing for NIU in the Esports Collegiate Conference. Want to participate in the program but not compete? Students can help us with shoutcasting, marketing and event planning.
