Esports league management company Mission Control has announced that it will partner with the University of Kentucky on a strategic level.
Mission control will help implement an Esports community programme for students to get involved with campus activities and provide the University of Kentucky with a strategy for implementing the programme. It is open to all students, whether they are current or former.
missioncontrol.com enables gamers on college campuses to seamlessly play and communicate with each other through their shared passion for video games according to an official press release.
“We’re excited to partner with Mission Control and offer their platform to our growing gaming community,” said Heath Price, Associate CIO at the University of Kentucky. Our new UKFCU Esports Lounge will be unveiled as we welcome our students back to campus and showcase our new UKFCU Esports Lounge.”
University of Kentucky will use Mission Control to host recurring esports leagues in conjunction with other gaming programming starting in the fall semester. Student engagement and social interaction are a shared goal for both parties.
In the past year, Mission Control has made a number of strategic decisions that have resulted in this partnership. WISE Esports Ventures, the parent company of the Minnesota RKKR Call of Duty League franchise and the Version1 brand, entered into a partnership with the company in November. Additionally, Stack Sports, The NC Recreation and Park Association (NCRPA), and HyperX have teamed up to create the program.
