ECPI University Rams eSports Team Joins ECAC!
ECPI University’s eSports team, the Rams, has accepted an invitation to join the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) eSports division. As stated on its website, the conference “is an eighty-year old organization with well over 200 members schools across all three NCAA Divisions - I, II and III - that exists to enhance the experience of student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics, and provide great value for universities and colleges, by sponsoring championships, leagues, bowl games, tournaments and other competitions throughout the Northeast. Most of the ECAC’s members also belong to another conference, which is often the school’s primary conference.
“The ECAC also hosts a comprehensive eSports program that presently involves 23 schools fielding 107 teams across six different eSports games that the ECAC sponsors. The ECAC’s eSports platform is expanding the geographic footprint of the Conference nationally. Additionally, the ECAC is becoming involved in sponsoring competitions and leagues involving other varsity and club sports that do not fall under the umbrella of the NCAA.”
Joining ECAC means that ECPI University will compete not only in NACE sanctioned events and tournaments, but also ECAC eSports Conference ones as well. “ECAC is working with game publishers to negotiate “conference buys” into the publishers’ national championship playoffs,” says ECPI University Athletic Director Mike Glover. “And that means that ECPI University could potentially win conference titles and play off births by playing in this conference.” With live, in-person events and conference championships, the ECAC is leading the way in collegiate eSports and ECPI University is excited to be a part of this prestigious organization.
The ECAC runs two eSports seasons (Fall and Spring) and ECPI University will compete in both. We will compete in the following game titles:
- League of Legends
- Rocket League
Other titles may be added later both to ECAC and the Rams lineup so stay tuned!
