National Association of Collegiate Esports
UW-Stout is joining the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), a nonprofit membership association of over 150 colleges & universities and 3,000+ student athletes across the United States.
Founded in 2016, NACE's mission is to promote the education and development of students through intercollegiate esports participation. NACE brings teams together for their fall and spring seasons for dozens of games like Counterstrike, Overwatch, League of Legends, and Rocket League. As of January 2018, over 94% of all varsity esports programs in the U.S. are members of NACE, with that number rapidly increasing in response to the growing market.
