Esports Gets Boost

June 7, 2018

PlayVS, a startup that is helping esports get started at the high school level, recently received $15 million in funding.

According to TechCrunch, PlayVS, founded by Delane Parnell, first launched in April, and partnered with the NFHS to help establish esports infrastructure. PlayVS has created a website that handles scheduling, organizing the league, maintaining leaderboards and other functions related to esports.

PlayVS plans on using the funding to expand their product, eventually going into every high school in America. Its first season is planned for October, involving 18 states, 5,000 schools and 5 million students, and it will have two seasons per year.
