What are esports teams?
Esports teams are made up of professional players, most of whom have a track record and experience that makes them stand out. They are usually chosen by the recruiters of the esports clubs.
It should be noted that esports teams must be prepared to play in competitions in their own country as well as abroad, as most tournaments are not only held in Europe but also in Asia, the United States, etc.
As esports is a discipline that is not played individually, it is important that each player knows how to complement the other members of his or her team.
It is worth mentioning that esports teams usually have one or more coaches who manage the players on a one-to-one basis as well as on a group level.
