Esports have really grown in popularity during the past few years.
A new fundraiser in Lethbridge will help generate a travel fund for underfunded local high school and collegiate esports teams to participate in upcoming competitions.
The event is called the Valorant Champions Watch Party.
Organizer Bradley Pike says the following for esports has increased by quite a bit.
“Especially after LCI’s win at Nationals. I mean, you’ve seen five esports programs just in Lethbridge coming after the Nationals win, so I definitely see a lot more growth coming after an event such as this watch party. And then also to add to that, provincials, like, high school provincials is coming up next May, so that’s also something to look forward to here in Lethbridge.”
The event will take place at the The Movie Mill in Lethbridge on Saturday from noon until 6pm.
