    ARLINGTON, Texas – High school and college students who receive A’s on their report card are now eligible for one free hour of gameplay per qualifying grade at Esports Stadium Arlington thanks to a new partnership with the United States Marine Corps.

    The Marine Corps, in association with Esports Stadium Arlington, recognizes and rewards academic excellence of students who compete both in the classroom and in the gaming space.

    All gamers, regardless of platform or genre, must face adversity and overcome challenges to succeed. Like Marines, there are battles won both as a team and as an individual that require intellect, resolve and the will to win.

    The Marine Corps Academic Excellence Program begins January 17, 2020, and will run through April 17, 2020. To redeem your free gameplay, please provide a copy of your report card to ESA staff upon gaming registration.
