If you're an actively enrolled student at any accredited college campus in the USA or Canada, you can become a Tespa member for free, connect with other students on your campus, compete in our tournaments, and earn digital benefits and discounts for your favorite games and brands!
If you'd like to join a dedicated in-person community, you can look for a chapter on your campus and become a part of our movement to change the world of gaming. If your school doesn't have a chapter, we can help you start one.
As a leader of a Tespa chapter, you’ll be taking on the challenge of building a home for college gaming on your campus. Take the reins of your chapter and unite gamers at your school like never before.
To support our chapters, we work with partners to support your events with prizes, equipment, and giveaways. We also create resources and tools to help guide your path, each step of the way. Whatever your dream is, we're here to help.
When you become a leader, you also become a part of a unique community of over 270 chapters and their leaders. Our leaders meet regularly to network, share experiences from their chapters, and discuss best practices to help each other improve. We also employ a full team of Chapter Coordinators to provide personalized, year-round mentorship and support for our chapters. As a leader, you'll never be alone.
Tespa is the world's leader in competitive college esports, with five year-round gaming leagues and over $3.3M in scholarships & prizing awarded to date. Our mission is to host epic premier leagues that recognize and reward the top competitors and teams in college esports, while also providing year-round open leagues that give up-and-coming players and place to hone their skills. The best players and teams in our esports programs have appeared on ESPN, Twitch, MLG, and other major network broadcasts.
For all of our competitors, our dream is to help you support your future through gaming. Our top prizing comes in the form of scholarships; it’s our way of integrating gaming excellence with the opportunity to grow as a student. Playing games is fun, but school should always come first.
We believe that competitive gaming can change students’ lives for the better. These are the stories we want to celebrate – and yours could be next!
