Esports Ambassadors

We are extremely excited about the new format of our Esports Ambassadors program! Through a collaboration with the University of California, Irvine, our awesome undergraduate ambassadors are ready to help take your esports club to the next level. 

Each of our Esports Ambassadors is equipped with unique experiences and skill sets representing different parts of the esports ecosystem, such as club branding, marketing, tournament organizing, fandom, and much more. In the coming months, they will host live streaming sessions and present content and resources to help your esports club grow and develop in these different areas. They’re also eager to be mentors, provide advice and guidance, and answer all your burning questions about life as a college student.

This program is led by Marvin Maldonado, Esports Ambassador Coordinator for NASEF and Director of STEM Education & Pathways for the Schools of Engineering & Information and Computer Science at UC Irvine. For more information, email him at
