So, this is the level we are at.
In a nation where the majority of jobs are set to be replaced by robots, the average young adult does not believe he is fully an adult until age 30 and most twenty somethings still live at home with mom and dad, one major university has officially declared that competitive “video gaming” is now a “sport” worthy of scholarship money.
The University of Utah will become the first big-time sports school to offer scholarships for competitive video gaming, so far the most high-profile entry into collegiate esports.
Backed by the Salt Lake City school’s video game development program, Utah’s first varsity esports team will play Riot Games’ popular League of Legends and compete in Riot’s collegiate league. More teams in other games will be announced this year.
