History of Crimson LAN
Competitive tournaments and Leagues have been run by student organizers for years - even before the existence of many of the current gaming organizations at the University of Utah. In Fall 2015, several student organizers decided to create a competitive event that was unmatched by any other, Crimson LAN. Crimson LAN was taken from just an idea and brought into reality in Fall 2015 bringing in over 150 attendees!
This special event is one that our team has worked hard to bring to students and locals alike in our city and state and one that we intend to bring to the community for many years to come!
What is Crimson Gaming?
Crimson Gaming was founded in August 2014 by Angie Klingsieck in order to find a way to level up the events on campus and to better connect the clubs at the University of Utah. Crimson Gaming has only grown since its inception and now boasts some of the largest events in the state of Utah. Starting with a small core board of three, Tespa now hosts a bimonthly local leadership council and invites any general members and gaming leadership at the University of Utah to come in, discuss issues, and collaborate on our upcoming events.
