KANSAS CITY, MO – The National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) is partnering with Fair-Play Corporation, a scoreboard and leading LED display provider.

“As a digital vehicle, esports requires a window into virtual competition for fans to truly engage with, especially when we return to live in-person events,” said Michael Brooks, Executive Director of NACE.  “Partnering with an amazing organization like Fair-Play, with a similar understanding of the staging and pageantry esports deserves, is a great boon for our association.  We look forward to many years of partnership with Fair-Play.”

Fair-Play has been providing scoreboards to venues and sports franchises across the United States for the past 85 years. Fair-Play LED display solutions have been deployed across Collegiate Divisions D1, D2, D3. NACE is proud to announce that Fair-Play has been designated as the official large LED display of NACE.

NACE and Fair-Play look forward to working together to enhance the championship experience of students and fans at key events throughout the year.  Additionally, Fair-Play will focus on providing unique opportunities to NACE member institutions for their own venues and events.

Fair-Play is extremely excited to be a partner with The National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE). “We see tremendous opportunity for growth in the LED market with esports in the coming years” quoted John Hammock (Chief Sales and Marketing Officer) for Fair-Play Corporation. “It is quite an honor to have been chosen by Michael and his team to deliver the ultimate experience for esports spectators and their fans.”

Craftsmen Industries, the contract manufacturing provider of Fair-Play, brings added value to the future of NACE events. The Saint Charles, Missouri-based company specializes in the design, engineering, and fabrication of custom trailers and arena platforms for experiential marketing activations.
