Utah Tech Esports, an e-sporting club at the Utah Tech University, has set up a new room with facilities for college teams. The room is equipped with 12 powerful gaming computers while two of them are multi-monitored. The computers have been provided by Dell as it has a partnership with the university.
The club’s president Danny Finnegan told St George News that there are players who don’t show up in big athletic events while the club would play a role to bring them on one stage and let them meet people of similar interest.
The club has six officially formed teams for the following six competitive games: Valorant, Call of Duty, Overwatch 2, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros: Ultimate and League of Legends. Finnegan himself coaches the ‘Super Smash Bros’ team in the club. However, the club also allows any member to enter the room and play any game they want.
Last semester, Utah Tech Esports had about 200 members. After the Student Union Building comes to an end, Finnegan will expand his club welcoming new members.
Sponsored by Ken Garff Esports, Utah Tech is set to host an open gaming event in November, later this year. With the event, the club aims to create a common stage for high school and college going students to meet and share knowledge and experiences about competitive esports events across the globe.
