What is Esports?

Esports combines the organizational structure of traditional sports with the thrill of competitive gaming. These teams compete against one another through various leagues and members often have the opportunity to earn scholarships, compete for conference and national championships, all while working towards their degree. 

Lander's Esports Structure

These titles compete in official Peach Belt and national competitions and have full access to our on-campus esports facility, scholarships, our strength and conditioning facilities, and other benefits. 

  • League of Legends
  • Overwatch

The Lander University Esports Production Crew was created in the Fall of 2023 and offers internship experience to those who successfully complete a full semester in the program. With each semester, a student earns a Certificate of Experience and cumulates in a Letter of Certification. This can be used and counted as an internship on resumes and will be validated by the coaching staff and Lander Athletics to help jump-start your career when you leave Lander.
