PlayVS Varsity

Where Gamers Are Athletes

School pride, uniforms, and official state championships — PlayVS brings all the excitement of varsity competition to esports. Through our partnerships with the NFHS Network and state associations nationwide, we make esports official.

Varsity — Powered By Partnerships

With the support and sanctioning of the NFHS Network and state associations across the country, we are able to offer varsity-level high school competition and state championships on our platform.

National Federation of State High School Associations Network

Sanctioning high school competition for over 100 years, the NFHS Network decides what is or is not a high school sport. We partnered with them because they believe, on our platform, esports is a high school sport.

23 State Association Partnerships (And Growing)

Each individual state partner crowns a new, official state champion every season.

Varsity Puts Your Best Against Their Best

Varsity puts each school's best teams in leagues with the best team from each school in their state.

Our High School Varsity Sports

Turn gamers into athletes with esports.

Live, In-person State Championship Events

A season is divided into a week-long preseason, an eight-week long regular season, followed by the playoffs. A state champion is crowned at the end of each season.

How Varsity Leagues Work

For simplicity, our season structure and schedule is the same for both Varsity and Recreational leagues. The details are below.

There are 2 seasons per school year in every league.

The Fall 2020’s regular season begins on October 8, 2020. The deadline to register for Fall 2020 is on October 1, 2020.
