Champions eLeague, LLC is the official strategic partner of Indiana Soccer Association serving the association’s member clubs with a state of the art platform for gamers to compete against one another in esports. Based out of Indiana, our goal is to ensure that children of appropriate age and all backgrounds have access to safe digital space where they can play with their peers in a fun and safe way.
Esports is not a replacement for soccer, it provides kids with a unique opportunity to learn & understand the game from a bird’s eye view. However, every parent, coach, or guardian must acknowledge that 90% of our children are digitally engaged and play video games on a regular basis. This is actually a good thing. We at Champions eLeague see this as an opportunity to give children, coaches, and parents a platform to further bond and engage with one another in a fun & safe environment. Esports is opening up additional pathways for scholarships, social engagement, and sportsmanship.
With the spirit of improving children’s lives we are launching an esports league that will provide an additional layer of support to the grass soccer leagues to further enhance grassroots youth soccer development. Our goal is to provide a fuller, more rich experience to our players.
