PlayVS taps League of Legends in launch of high school esports platform in 5 states, including Georgia


PlayVS, the startup bringing an e-sports infrastructure to the high school level, has announced that it will partner with Riot’s League of Legends for its early-access season.

High school students across five states, including Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, will be able to sign up to play for their school in Season Zero, which begins in October 2018.

Around 200 colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada are offering esports scholarships, but without any infrastructure around high school esports, those recruiters are left at the mercy of the publishers and a grueling tournament schedule.
