This University Is Launching A Varsity Esports Program

North Park University in Chicago, Illinois is all set to add esports as the institution’s first co-ed sport. The University has already begun recruiting, with competition set to begin in the fall of 2023.

“We are excited to add Esports to the athletic department,” said John Born, Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics at North Park University. “It is a great opportunity to meet the current demand and add to the diversity of the institution. The combination of an emerging sport and the resources of Chicago was a definite win-win scenario.”   

North Park University also announced that they have already launched a nationwide search for a full-time esports coach and staff to lead the program.
