A South Korean university has started accepting gamers as “student athletes”.

Chung-Ang University has allowed gamers to enrol as athletes.

Although it’s in the RTS/MOBA capital of the world, this brings new argument into the “Is eSports counted as real sports?” debate.

Suprisingly, Chung-Ang is considered a top 10 university in South Korea.

The university will begin accepting eSports applicants starting next year, with students being enrolled into the school’s Department of Sport Science.
