The Ferris Esports club was founded Fall semester 2018 when the E-Board members transitioned from being the League of Legends Registered Student Organization (LOL RSO) to encompass all Esport related video games for the students of Ferris State University. Currently the Ferris Esports club has a diverse population of 190 members that stretch across many different majors and degrees at Ferris State University.
The Ferris Esports club has a wide range of Esport video games that members can compete in such as Overwatch, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rainbow Six: Siege, Rocket League, or any other game the organization sees fit to compete in. Players will compete in registered leagues against other collegiate teams in Michigan and across the United States.
Besides members who compete on either the Crimson or Gold teams for their respective game, members can also be apart of the Esports Production crew who help document, create, organize, and host our weekly Twitch broadcasts showcasing the players of the Esports club. We are always looking for members who have great communication skills for Esports Broadcasters, written skills for Esports Communication, and organization skills to host Esports Tournament Events such as “Michigan Bandwidth Bowl” the online tournament against other Michigan Esport Universities.

The Ferris Esports Organization also hosts an online Esports competition named the “Michigan Bandwidth Bowl” which matches up other Michigan Collegiate Esports programs against each other in a round robin format. Universities field teams for specific games and complete in a team event earning their University points towards the leader board. At the end of the event points are tallied to determine the University who has won the Michigan Bandwidth Bowl. Last year Michigan State, University of Michigan, Michigan Tech, Grand Valley State University, and Ferris State University all competed in Rocket League, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, and Overwatch. The winner of the 2019 Michigan Bandwidth Bowl was Michigan State University.
