Riot have announced their support to help create clubs for schools. Helping college and university students find fellow players or summoners on campus and form friendships between new players and pros. Offering help to either find your nearest club or help to create a new club. Riot are offering various rewards for perseverance by setting milestones for new club organisers.
The Collegiate Program will help you either find a League of Legends club in your area or create a new one if none are present. If you're an organizer looking to start your own club, we're here to help. We’ve got a lot of swag, tools, and a support system, to help you get started and overcome any challenges you may face. Running a club isn't easy, but creating a League of Legends community that's open to players of all skill levels is a really rewarding experience.
The Collegiate Program is clearly demonstrating one thing. Riot are clued in. With eSports growing across the internet to focus now on multiple localised fronts in providing small micro-communities League of Legends is sure to grow.
