Generation Esports Partners with Ting Partner for High School Esports Tournaments

Kansas City-based Generation Esports (GenE) and fiber-optic internet provider Ting Internet are teaming up to bring a series of FREE esports tournaments to schools in “Ting Towns” across the country. Tournaments will be completely virtual, and participants can win tons of exciting prizes including laptops, monitors, gift cards, and more.

Ting will also host in-person community gaming events in select towns and provide four lucky schools with esports labs and full-year scholarships for students in GenE’s High School Esports League (HSEL).

This partnership will enable GenE to assist Ting with equipment, staffing, and event planning, while also making esports more accessible and legitimizing it as a varsity-level sport. Ultimately, GenE and Ting Internet will empower high school students with opportunities to build friendships, learn teamwork, and be part of an inclusive esports team with no cost to the school or parents.

Ting-sponsored tournaments kick off this September in all Ting Towns across the United States and continue into 2022. Tournaments will be completely virtual, and participants will have the opportunity to win prizes including gift cards, gaming consoles, laptops, TVs, and monitors. Registration for the September tournament is live here; the game is Rocket League.

Ting will also host an in-person gaming event in select towns featuring that month’s game. These are free events that aim to provide communities with gaming experiences and a safe space to socialize. The first in-person event is September 11th, 20211 at the Boys and Girls Club in Solana Beach, Calif. Ting also will provide four schools with esports labs and full-year scholarships for students who participate in the HSEL 2021-2022 season.

“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Generation Esports and to kick off an exciting gaming experience in all of our Ting Towns. Through this partnership, we’re dedicated to promoting equal access to esports education and gaming to local students,” said Drew Hurst, senior marketing operations at Ting Internet. “These days, video games are so much more than entertainment. The skills and technology integration into so many facets of our society, advancing industries like never before. Our hope is this program unlocks new opportunities and career paths for students in our Ting Towns, specifically within gaming and STEAM industries.”

Each school will receive everything they need to kick start or improve their esports team, including team jerseys, computers, desks, chairs, and consoles. In addition, the schools will receive monthly workshops and Q&As for students. At these events, students connect with esports professionals, influencers, gaming experts, and more to learn about career and college opportunities, and ask any questions they have about how to compete better, diversity in gaming, and more.
