University of Guam launches competitive esports program
The University of Guam has launched the island’s first collegiate esports program, Triton Esports. The program will be hosting events and fielding student teams at the club level over the summer, and the Triton Athletics Department will be working to develop a varsity esports team to compete with other universities and colleges by 2021–2022.
“Esports, particularly collegiate esports, is one of the fastest growing sports in the world,” said Jonas Macapinlac, chief marketing and communications officer for the university and co-chair of the Esports Committee. “We are extremely excited about this program and can’t wait to represent the island and UOG against other universities and colleges.”
