The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) has selected the North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF) as the Official Esports Provider of the CIF Esports Initiative. NASEF shares the core values and mission of CIF regarding education-based opportunities for the students of California, with our model that connects gameplay and competition to meaningful education around life and career skills.

Together, NASEF and CIF will offer tournaments in top esports titles. Tournaments will be hosted on the UGC (Ultimate Gaming Championship) platform, which is recognized for its ease-of-use and is supported by a highly responsive development team. NASEF’s structure combines competition with education about career pathways in the esports world and beyond, making high school esports a place where students prepare for global career opportunities as well as competition.

We’re working diligently to iron out the details, and we will have additional information about the partnership and the upcoming Fall 2022 season (schedule overview, game titles, etc.) as schools begin to return to campus in August.
