the Florida Recreation and Park Association (FRPA) announced that they will be hosting Florida’s first ever Esports State Championship this August, powered by Mission Control. The FRPA Esports State Championship presented by the Florida Mutineers is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for children and young adults to come together and compete in something they love, playing video games.
Recreational communities across the state will host qualifying events to find the best of the best gamers in their communities. The winners will be sent to FRPA’s Esports State Championship Presented by the Florida Mutineers. Players will compete across Fortnite, Rocket League, and Super Smash Brothers, virtually, using the Mission Control platform.
Currently, Mission Control partners with a number of recreation organizations across Florida, bringing local communities together through their platform. This is a unique opportunity to gather these groups for a larger event and connect players from all over the state.
The Florida Mutineers will be supporting local communities in their home state of Florida with prizing and other promotions around the event. The Florida Mutineers will also be working with Mission Control to help educate recreational departments on the value of esports in their community.
“Being a part of the FRPA Esports State Championship is an opportunity to help build out recreational esports all across Florida” says Justin Stefanovic SVP Partnerships, Misfits Gaming Group, “together with FRPA and Mission Control we are able to connect with local communities and support grassroots programming across the state”.
