Concord Preps for Esports Varsity Team

Esports is competitive, organized video gaming that attracts players and spectators from around the world.  Concord was the first public college or university in West Virginia to offer varsity esports to its students.  “Not only will starting a varsity esports team allow more students to compete on the collegiate level, the university hopes to use this as a springboard for future courses,” President Boggess says.   Only seven colleges and universities had varsity esports programs in July of 2016. By 2018, there were 63 institutions.
