Esports leagues are one of the fastest-growing programs in the world. Thornton Parks, Recreation & Community Programs has partnered with Mission Control to offer a variety of online gaming leagues/tournaments for participants of all ages and ability levels. Games such as Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, Rocket League, NBA2K, FIFA, NHL, Madden Football, Fortnite and Call of Duty are available now with more options being added in the near future. 

Registration is taken, games are scheduled, standings are posted, there is a tournament at the end and a champion is crowned!

All games are played online. Players must have all of the necessary hardware (gaming console, controller, etc.), software (Mission Control App, video game, etc.), and online access (Xbox Live, Playstation Plus, etc.) in order to play. For younger children participating in our eSports leagues, we recommend that parents check the content ratings of each game before allowing the child to register.

Leagues start at just $5!
