Mile High eSports was founded in order to build community focused, high quality competitive gaming communities and events. Our team has years of experience across community development, tournament administration, and event production with a focus on electronic sports and high-level gameplay. We work to create consistent gaming experiences and memorable live events.

Event Production

Planning and Execution

MHE will work with your team to locate local venues, create event projections, outline staffing logistics, and develop cost estimations. We execute together on an event roadmap that ends with event teardown and ecstatic players.

Community Development

Platform Creation and Upkeep

With our expertise in web application development and competitive gaming, we can help you develop a unique platform catered to your team, group, or community. Work with us to build an experience that sets you apart. Our team will consult with you to refine the project scope and outline costs.

Tournament Administration

Organized, Punctual, and Fair

It can be difficult to keep up with game rules, versioning, hardware, and logistics for every eSport title. MHE will organize every component of your tournament and be there with trained Tournament Admins on match days to run an unforgettable tournament.
