The High School Esports League (HSEL) has announced that Fortnite is the league's next title for the Summer Open season, with the winner receiving two hours of playtime against Svennoss, courtesy of NRG Esports. That's not all though, as the grand champion will also receive a Respawn gaming chair and HSEL merchandise too.
"With the explosive rise of Fortnite, and colleges starting to offer more and more scholarships, making it our Summer Open title was a no-brainer," said Mason Mullenioux, CEO of High School Esports League. "So, being the first to offer Fortnite, plus working with NRG eSports and Svennoss, really takes things to the next level. We're thrilled to continue to create more opportunity and value for the students."
"We're thrilled to team up with High School Esports League for the first-ever Fortnite tournament at the high school level," said Brett Lautenbach, CEO of NRG eSports. "These players are the future of professional eSports and any chance we have to work with them to grow the sport is a top priority."
