SUNY Empire Esports
SUNY Empire is proud to offer an Esports program that is open to all students to compete at the collegiate level! We offer tournament, as well as league play, in SUNY Esports and the Eastern Collegiate Athletics Conference (ECAC). Our teams compete across the following, though we are always looking to add more games and teams:Call of Duty, Fortnite, Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege 5, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros. and Valorant.
The SUNY Empire Esports program was founded with our participation in the 2020 SUNY Chancellor’s Esports Challenge, with 10 teams representing SUNY Empire State College. In 2021 we're proud to join the ECAC, which includes over 90 colleges. We hope to expand the number of titles we play in as well as improve our placement in 2021 competitions!
Of course we also encourage casual, non-competitive play between students, and have a Discord server to facilliate both casual and competitive activities. SUNY Empire Esports athletes come from all across New York state. They represent all ages and academic disciplines, and include majors such as business, technology, art, education, and many others.
All games are at 8pm ET.
