The ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) is an eighty-year old organization with well over 200 members schools across all three NCAA Divisions – I, II and III – that exists to enhance the experience of student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics, and provide great value for universities and colleges, by sponsoring championships, leagues, bowl games, tournaments and other competitions throughout the Northeast. Most of the ECAC’s members also belong to another conference, which is often the school’s primary conference.
The ECAC also hosts a comprehensive esports program that in the inaugural season involved 23 schools, fielding over 100 teams across six different game titles that the ECAC sponsors. The ECAC’s esports platform is expanding the geographic footprint of the Conference nationally.
Additionally, the ECAC is becoming involved in sponsoring competitions and leagues involving other varsity and club sports that do not fall under the umbrella of the NCAA.
