The offseason in collegiate esports generally involves roster changes and partnerships, but no one had McDonalds on their bingo card. Today Maryville University announced that they’re partnering with McDonalds of Metro St. Louis.
As it says in their tweet, few fast food chains have reach in their area like the juggernaut McDonald’s and a local university partnering with such a brand is an exceptional move. Furthermore, McDonalds choosing to pair with Maryville proves how impressive their collegiate program has become is just a few years. To celebrate the announcement, Maryville is doing multiple giveaways on their Instagram for the next few weeks which can be found here.
