Electronic Gaming Federation Teams Up With ESPN Wide World of Sports for High School Esports National Championship

The growth of esports has been monumental over the last few years.

In July, a Pennsylvania teen won $3M for placing 1st in a Fortnite championship.

ESPN Wide World of Sports is partnering with the Electronic Gaming Federation (EGF) to host the national interscholastic high school esports championship tournament June 12-14, 2020.

“We are proud to be working with The Electronic Gaming Federation on what we think will be an exciting venture into the esports business. This project represents a new opportunity for us here at the sports complex and we look forward to hosting the high school esports national championship next year.”

– Faron Kelley, Vice President of ESPN Wide World of Sports

Teams will earn their way into the national championship by advancing through a series of regional qualifying events in fall 2019 and spring 2020.

This new esports event is one of several elite youth sports events that take place annually at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, one of the premier sites for amateur sports in the nation.
