Following new measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 more organizations are looking for ways to innovate and incorporate a remote offering to families. The casual social experience offered by Mission Control allows local recreational groups to form and run a league.

About Mission Control
St. Louis based Mission Control is a platform for recreational league esports, similar to a local adult softball league or college intramurals — but for video games. Mission Control manages the league schedule, validates scores, and determines the champion while also serving as a community forum for league members and friends. Gamers join Mission Control leagues (hosted by local and national organizations) for a casual, social experience doing something they love with their community. Organizations — whether a community center, college rec department, gaming hub, or other groups — can use Mission Control to gather a following, host leagues of various game titles, and manage their esports’ operations.
