Wolves leading the way on eSports!
Eight teams from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland will compete in the league to win the Sportego Community Cup.
The Celtic eSports league matches the top gamers from the UK and Ireland with professional football clubs in a Community Cup which will last for one week starting December 12, with a full league competition starting in January 2017.
Wolves are delighted be involved in this inaugural competition and have former winger Rohan Ricketts, representing the club. eSports is an exciting new opportunity for us to engage with a younger audience who consume football in a different way. Hopefully fans will get behind Rohan and support him in the competition!
Geoff Wilson from the Celtic eSports League said: “We are delighted to have Wolverhampton Wanders FC, an institution of English football, onboard for the inaugural competition as the only English based club.
“eSports is growing at a phenomenal rate world-wide and the clubs’ involvement demonstrates their proactive and innovative approach to growing the brand of their clubs online. The Sportego Celtic eSports League is an exciting new concept and we hope to attract new fans for not only the league but all the clubs involved.”
