Alaska has become a hub for esports and MTA continues to play a major role in this rise with community building tournaments, supporting MSBSD's esports programs, and strong partnerships with leaders like AK Gamers, Arctic Comic Con, Senshi Con, and more. MTA Gaming builds lifelong, strategic relationships within Alaska gaming. These efforts, supported by the entire team at MTA, help make all that MTA Gaming stands for a possibility.
“MTA is proud to lead Alaska’s growth in the esports world and look forward to the connections between education and technology that MTA Gaming will continue to develop.”
You might think the Last Frontier gets left in the cold when it comes to esports, but you’d be wrong. Through constant collaboration and community building between MTA Gaming, local businesses, Alaska schools, and the gaming community, we are pioneering esports throughout Alaska.
Through impactful financial support, consultation, and a robust internship program, MTA partners with MSBSD to further engage their already growing competitive esports programs.
Last year our gaming tournament raised nearly $30K for the MTA Foundation and was recognized as the best virtual event by Alaska Business Magazine! We are proud to continue pioneering esports in Alaska with the state's first ever esports league. Gamers from Ketchikan to Nome competed for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes in the inaugural season.
Over the past several years, MTA’s annual gaming tournament has served as a signature event helping to promote the MTA Foundation, underscoring our long-running commitment to giving back to the communities we serve. The MTA Foundation serves to pioneer technology growth and economic development throughout Alaska with its robust scholarship program and monumental major grants.
