feasibility study

Esport Supply was able to create a feasibility study for Saint Xavier that revealed the current interest of esports on campus, recommended what steps SXU needed to take in order to bring the community to life, and helped plan out what the future of an esports team would look like.

In a space that was once the campus bookstore now sits Saint Xavier University’s Esports Arena. Competition began in Fall of 2022, with over 40 competitors on the team in their first semester. With titles such as League of Legends, Overwatch, Valorant, Rocket League and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. SXU’s esports arena is equipped with 32 Gaming Stations, a plethora of lounge space with several console gaming areas, coach’s room, and a designated team room. Everything a student needs to be successful inside and out of the game. The team offers a wide array of roles to take part in including broadcasting, production, social media, and team management.
