The SFA Athletics eSports Mission

What are eSports?

Esports are defined as any form of competition facilitated by electronic systems, meaning player-versus-player video games.

Mission

SFASU is committed to offering innovative programs that speak to community members and students, no matter background and interests. Furthermore, SFA recognizes the direct correlation between STEM related subjects and the eSports Industry.

With all of this in mind, SFA looks to host high-quality eSports events and activities for the surrounding community and students. To assure the best eSports experience possible, we have sought out to provide one of the best gaming facilities around within the William R. Johnson Coliseum.
