Illinois Tech Esports’ mission is to engage the community in casual and competitive gaming. We strive to create experiences dedicated to the player, and aim to provide value for both gamers and our sponsors. Whether competing in high-level tournaments or a casual LAN party, our goal is to create a space for everyone to connect through gaming.
Originally formed in 2013, Illinois Tech Esports (formerly known as Scarlet League) is an established non-profit collegiate esports organization that has quickly grown to be seen as a regional leader for its community focused, high-quality events. What started out as small gatherings for multiple competitive games, such as Super Smash and League of Legends, developed into a club that provides events for the whole community to participate in.
Today, the organization has competitive teams across multiple games, provides large scale in-person tournaments, and social gatherings throughout the year. Teams play against other institutions across North America and have the opportunity to travel for live events and competitions. Our humble beginnings of dorm room meetups have expanded to a robust Discord server with over 500 active participants and daily evening practices in our esports center.
