With the opening of our first Triton Esports Center approaching, the partnership with Turtle Beach and ROCCAT showcases the incredible community that builds, supports, and accelerates esports forward,” notes Rich Mylin, Director of UC San Diego Recreation. “Furthermore, the investment they have made in creating scholarship opportunities for students will have a tremendous impact well beyond today.”
