Competitive Esports Athlete Talent Call

The U.S. Army Esports (USAE) Team is a highly successful, DA-sanctioned program run by the Marketing and Engagement Brigade known for the Army Parachute Team and Army Marksmanship Unit. The organization fields competitive teams & streaming talent to represent the U.S. Army both online and at events across the country. The mission is simple: connect America to its Army through the passion of gaming.

We are looking to expand our talent pool of Active Duty, Army Reserve, and National Guard Soldiers across select Esports genres and platforms.

  • First-Person Shooters (Halo, Call of Duty, Overwatch, etc.)
  • Fighting Games (Tekken, GGS, Super Smash Brothers, etc.)
  • MMO/MOBA (League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, etc.)
  • Sports/Racing (Rocket League, NBA2K, iRacing, etc.)

We are also interested in Soldiers with exceptional abilities in other titles, Soldier gamers with significant social media followings, and Soldiers who have very strong streaming/commentator abilities.

Soldiers selected for the team must be prepared for a PCS assignment to Fort Knox and understand that joining the team will involve outreach engagements and interaction with the public on a daily basis. There is also an opportunity to be a part of the "at-large" team if you are not selected for the Fort Knox based resident team and/or cannot PCS to Fort Knox. The current U.S. Army Esports at-large team represents dozens of additional game titles.
