Missouri Western President Matthew Wilson will introduce the new director/head coach tasked with creating Missouri Western’s varsity and club esports programs on Wednesday.

Esports is organized team-based, multiplayer competitive video gaming.

Esports competitions among collegiate teams and professionals can take place in arenas in front of large audiences and are streamed on the internet or broadcast on television.

The announcement comes on the heels of the addition of a women’s lacrosse team at Missouri Western for the 2020-2021 academic school year.
