Mission Control will provide University of Kentucky with a strategy and execution of a successful community esports program to enable current, future, and even former students to get involved in campus activities. Through the Mission Control platform, students will be able to seamlessly play, and communicate, with other gamers on campus, allowing them to foster relationships through their shared passion of video games.

These leagues, and the conversations and interactions that they create, will serve to keep their students engaged, and socially active, year around.
