What is Esports?
Esports (also known as electronic sports, e-sports, or eSports) is a form of sport competition using video games. Esports often takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions. Generally, Esports can be applied to any type of digital game that is competitive, regardless of specific format and theme.
The City of Forney has partnered with Mission Control (host platform) to bring Esports opportunities to our community.
Mission Control is a platform for rec league Esports, similar to a local adult softball league or college intramurals — but for video games. Mission Control manages the league schedule, validates scores, and determines the champion while also serving as a community forum for league members and friends.
Gamers join Mission Control leagues (hosted by local and national organizations) for a casual, social experience doing something they love with their community.
What is the cost for participating?
Currently all leagues are $5.
How long is a season?
The season will run for 8 weeks; this is 6 weeks of regular season and 2 weeks of playoffs
What equipment do I need to participate?
Participants must have access to their own console and game. Access to the consoles online network (Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, Nintendo Switch Online) is required. Participants will also need to download the Mission Control (host platform) app.
Is gaming equipment provided?
Equipment is currently not provided for online leagues. Players must own their own console, game(s), and live account associated with the console.
Who do we contact for customer service?
