Esports club sport teams have become an emerging trend on many college campuses and becoming more prevalent in the realm of campus recreation. In Fall 2020, Saint Joseph's grassroots club was elevated to a club sports team with additional resources for training and administration. The University’s esports initiative is multi-faceted and features a tech-forward, multi-use lab; academic coursework and student experiences with a club sport option for students interested in entering the gaming network and industry.

SJU esports athletes will have the opportunity to strengthen their abilities to work in teams, compete against other teams and assume key leadership roles. Team members have access to the esports lab in Merion Hall for practice and competition.

Saint Joseph's University is a member of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).
