This summer ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will host the 2020 Walt Disney World Electronic Gaming Federation High School National Championship. The event will be held June 12th-14th and will bring together regional winners from across the United States.
Disney’s Wide World of Sports is commonly associated with high school competitive teams, but this will be the first with Electronic Gaming. Players will compete for three game titles. “At ESPN Wide World of Sports, we strive to make dreams come true for competitors and fans from many different sports,” said Faron Kelley, vice president, Disney Sports. “We look forward to adding our first high school esports tournament to this list and are proud to work with EGF, a leader in esports youth events.”
Since 1997, the ESPN Sports Complex at Walt Disney World has invited athletes and fans alike to enjoy the magic of sports. The complex can host over 60 sports across 10 world-class venues. It is close to the WDW theme parks, resorts and Disney Springs. “We’re proud to partner with Walt Disney World Resort to bring the championship of the EGF high school esports season to the ESPN Wide World of Sports! This will be a powerful final destination for our league which will generate even more excitement among players and families as they strive to qualify,” said Tyler Schrodt, founder and president of Electronic Gaming Federation.
