In the US, e-sports is one of the fastest-growing forms of entertainment today, whose numbers watching some of the events under the banner even surpass some professional sports.

Recently, the Pac-12 (a US NCAA Division I conference) publicly announced that they are committing to broadcast e-sports competitions taking place with its member universities on their TV network starting next academic year. The game titles and event formats are yet to be determined, though.
Pac-12 Networks & E-sports
Finally, following an internal review of the growing interest amongst Pac-12 students in competitive video gaming, the presidents and chancellors approved Pac-12 Networks to commence e-sports competitions with Pac-12 universities this upcoming year. Teams from campuses will participate based on a specific game, and the competitions will include head-to-head matchups in studios as well as a tournament in conjunction with a Pac-12 championship event. The game titles and event formats are still to be determined, but will be announced in the coming months.

Intercollegiate competition in egaming is in its initial stages, but Pac-12 universities are increasingly involved through passionate student groups competing in competitions with popular games. E-sports is also closely tied to academic departments at Pac-12 universities such as computer science, visual and cinematic arts, engineering and others.

“E-sports is a natural fit for many of our universities located in the technology and media hubs of the country,” said Scott. “Pac-12 Networks’ commitment to innovation as well as its natural tie to our universities and established media platform make it the perfect organization to develop the framework for e-sports intercollegiate competition.”

Meanwhile, with the growing number of our youth who are into these games, can the UAAP follow the Pac-12's suit or is it too much risk for the Board to even consider this?

    Meron na e-sports sa SEA Games for 2019 at may narinig na daw akong balak na magsasanction na din ang UAAP ng e-sports for Season 82. May source na ba for the latter?
