Most people don’t realize that universities like Concordia Nebraska have esports teams. These teams not only offer opportunities for fun and fellowship with teammates, but may also mean scholarship opportunities for students. Concordia Nebraska’s esports team Valorant enjoyed particular success in the spring 2023 semester.
The best esports teams across Nebraska will compete in person at the 2021 Fall Nebraska Schools Esports Association (NSeSA) state tournament at Concordia University Nov. 19-20.
The Concordia esports team is looking to capitalize on the momentum it built during its first semester of competition last spring as the Fall 2021 season gets underway.
Nearly a year after Concordia announced the addition of an esports program, the team competed in its first matches this week in Overwatch and Rocket League. In the first two matches or regular season action, the Rocket League team fell to Carroll University 3-1 on Feb. 9, and the Overwatch team fell to Randolph-Macon College 3-0 on Feb. 11.
Concordia University, Nebraska today announced that it will launch a competitive esports program beginning in the Fall of 2020.
