The Esports Combine™ is the world’s largest and most successful college recruiting and networking events dedicated to connecting aspiring esports players and video game fans with programs that will prepare gamers for success.
For players, this is your opportunity to earn scholarships for esports and to find top collegiate programs that will help you build upon your dreams and aspirations.
Rise and Get Discovered.
Around the country, high schools, colleges, and even semi-pro esports teams are joining the Combine to help players get discovered.
Hundreds of schools and teams are on GYO. Find your match during the Combine.
During the week prior to the Combine event, schools are invited to compete virtually in intense team-based competitions to record gameplay for future scouts to review.
Live showcase matches between high schools will be hosted at the venue for scouts to watch and recruit from. Players and recruiters will be able to enjoy face-to-face networking.
Furthering our commitment to education, a 3-Day schedule will be packed full of virtual panels. This will allow players and industry professionals to learn from some of the industry’s leading voices and interact with them. All sessions will be recorded and made available on demand.
We’re pulling out all the stops to make sure players have the best chance to get recruited and discovered through this process. To help us educate and inform our players, our Recruitment Partners at Next College Student Athlete will provide educational workshops helping players and their parents understand the recruitment pipeline so they can maximize their opportunity.
There are hundreds of gaming titles, but only a few are designated in collegiate esports programs. The core titles currently supported by Universities and Colleges are all supported by The Esports Combine. Players are welcome to provide scouting profiles for any and all titles they play and remember – schools are looking for ALL skill levels as they grow their programs!
