"Bringing esports tournaments and educational opportunities to HBCU students helps bridge the digital divide, something Blaze Fire Games is committed to eradicating. We are especially excited that we have the support of the NBA2K and the National Basketball Players Association as we bring this to life on HBCU campuses," stated Isiah Reese, CEO, and Co-Founder of Blaze Fire Games. As a direct result of that support, the Tour will kick off with an NBA2K Esports weekend. This will be the first NBA2K Esports event to take place across all 11 MEAC schools. As the Tour schedule progresses, NBA2K Tournaments will be featured prominently in all weekend events.
"This is the perfect next step to the HBCU Internship Program we announced together earlier this year," said Leslie Fitzsimmons, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing for Beasley Esports "It is an amazing opportunity for the students and schools, providing career pathways through esports curriculum and putting them on the competitive collegiate esports stage for the first time, creating a new legacy."
