Welcome to the 2023 Fenworks Esports State Tournament! First and foremost, we are so grateful to each of you. Without the students, the General Managers, school administrators, schools, parents, and the communities, Fenworks wouldn’t be who we are and do what we love. We are so excited to celebrate the hard work and dedication of the teams that are competing in the state tournament. We hope you have an enjoyable and memorable experience. Be sure to check back often for updates! 


This event is free to all participants and fans.


There will be teams traveling from across North Dakota and Minnesota. Be sure to take a moment to see how long your trip is expected to take to Grand Forks, North Dakota so that you can arrive with plenty of time to get registered and settled in. Schools should plan to arrive in Grand Forks between 10:00 am – 11:30 am on Friday, March 31.
