Bloomfield College has become the latest college in New Jersey to start an esports program.
School officials say that the idea for the program has been in the works for several years. The school has now opened an esports center with top-of-the-line computers to help the players compete.
The program will become part of the National Association of Collegiate Esports, the governing body for all collegiate esports programs.

It was unclear which games the new team would focus on, but other esports teams at New Jersey colleges focus on games like League of Legends and Overwatch.
The Bloomfield program will be available to all students who are enrolled full time and working toward a degree. The roster will consist of three teams of five students, for a total of 15 players.
Other New Jersey colleges that have esports programs include Rutgers University, Seton Hall University and Union County College, among others.
