Boise State University is going all in with its eSports program. In late 2017, it announced it was starting its own team, allowing student gamers to compete against other members of the National Association of Collegiate eSports.

On Monday, BSU revealed that it will be part of another first: The university will host the first-ever eSports tourney for Idaho high school students. The competition, slated for Saturday, April 21, will include three team events—five-on-five League of Legends, three-on-three Overwatch Esports and three-on-three Rocket League—as well as a single-player event, Super Smash Bros.

Put on by the College of Education, the College of Innovation and Design, and the Department of Educational Technology, the tourney is open to all Idaho high school students, though each team must have an adult supervisor associated with its high school, and each player must pay a $25 registration fee. Online registration opened March 5. Prizes for winning teams and individuals have not yet been announced.

The event is free to attend for spectators, with events beginning at 11 a.m. in the Jordan Ballroom at the Student Union Building. Games will also stream live on the BSU eSports Twitch channel.
