KANSAS CITY, MO (DECEMBER 2, 2021)– As NACE Starleague wraps up its Fall 2021 NACE Starleague Grand Finals this weekend, the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), a 501(c)(3) and North America’s largest association of varsity esports programs, is excited to announce the addition of LeagueSpot to NACE Starleague’s lineup of leading esports collegiate partners. LeagueSpot, an all-inclusive esports platform, puts school administrators, coaches, and captains first with unparalleled tools to create a best-in-class competitive esports experience for their teams and players.
NACE Starleague formed earlier this year as a collaboration between leading companies in the collegiate esports scene with the National Association of Collegiate Esports teaming with partners like CSL Esports, a Playfly Sports company, and Nerd Street, North America’s largest esports infrastructure company. LeagueSpot’s offerings will include white label branding, player privacy and data security, and advanced in-platform chat functions to customize events, further protect players, and provide an all-in-one platform to showcase brands in the world of competitive esports.
“The LeagueSpot team is humbled that NACE Starleague trusts LeagueSpot to power its program moving forward,” said Andrew Barnett, CEO, LeagueSpot. “We’re excited to support a best-in-class experience for every participating school.”
The incorporation of LeagueSpot’s tools and support comes as NACE Starleague celebrates a groundbreakingly successful fall season that saw more than 700 varsity teams and nearly 10,000 total players competing across more than 5,000 matches. In support of that participation, NACE Starleague also welcomed 14 brand new corporate sponsors including Monster Energy Canada, GUNNAR Optiks and MAVIX.
"As there has never before been a collegiate esports league of this size, our members require a platform that can support the hundreds of teams competing in NACE Starleague" said Michael Brooks, Executive Director, NACE. "LeagueSpot's offerings will help streamline competition across North America and support the twelve esports we provide our members this spring."
