Esports Insider says: Since the debut of the NACE Starleague, collegiate esports has steadily risen in prominence. The league’s recent partnerships are a testament to its commercial growth. Only time will tell whether the league can positively enhance the esports industry from a competitive standpoint, however, NACE Starleague is succeeding in attracting a range of endemic and non-endemic partners.
