The Seahawk Esports club is an all-inclusive organization that welcomes individuals from various backgrounds to foster a community that shares a common passion: video games. We aim to create teams that compete competitively, host game nights for everyone to enjoy, but we mainly aspire to help establish lasting relationships among club members.
The club started in the Fall of 2019 and is already home to almost 350 members and six competitive teams that compete in the club circuit against other universities. Covid has not slowed us down, in fact we are more connected than ever as we are a community that thrives in an online environment!
UNCW Esports includes:
Club with over 350 members on our discord server
6 Teams that compete nationally
Friday and Saturday night club events (online due to covid)
Local tournaments for UNCW students and the surrounding community
Esports are competitive video games played by professionals and amateurs who compete in high stakes events. The industry has grown rapidly over the last decade:
Viewership of the 2019 League of Legends championship reached 100 million viewers, the same as the 2019 Super Bowl
Streaming Esports platforms Twitch and YouTube Gaming each have more subscribers than Netflix
We need your help!
This year we have 6 teams that are competing against other universities in the club circuit. Some of these tournaments require entry fees. Additionally, our team members need jerseys so that they can represent UNCW in live broadcasts. Throughout the semester we hold free Friday and Saturday game nights (online) and need to purchase software in order to host/play these events for our students. Finally, when it is safe to do so, we plan to continue our free local tournaments for UNCW and the community.
Thanks for your support!
