Full Sail Armada community members came together in the Fortress to celebrate the beginning of a new competitive season.
Full Sail Armada athletes, casters, stream team members, and staff recently came together in the Full Sail University Orlando Health Fortress to celebrate the kick-off of the fall 2023 season. With competitive play already in full swing, the event gave student-athletes the chance to connect with Armada staff and graduates, meet this year’s club leadership, and receive their coveted 2023 Armada player jerseys.

Community members in attendance also got to witness the unveiling of two new additions to the collegiate esports organization’s home base.
