Yes, you’ve read that correctly, Manchester City Esports does not have a full roster as of yet and because of this they have actually set out to search and find the perfect members to join their team for the future matches in the Fortnite scene.
In case you didn’t know by now, Manchester City Esports is one of the top Manchester-based football clubs and although the football club has been around for a very long time now, they only recently started dabbling into the Esports scene and they require a lot of help from all of you.
In order to find the members that they need to play on their behalf, Manchester City has decided to post an actual open recruitment page through which they want everyone to apply.
Other than those members that will be added from the crowd, however, this club has also officially added professional player Aidan “Threats” Mong to the lineup which is really amazing to say the least.
Manchester City have literally become one of the most famous football clubs in the world and that’s a fact. Even if you have never played nor watched football in your life you most likely know about them because they’re always at the top regardless of which team players they actually have in the roster.
This is why we are so excited to see them join in on the Esports scene since this will bring about so much more exposure and it will also take Esports, a rather controversial part of professional sports, and bring it to the mainstream media unlike anything we’ve seen before.
This is also amazing timing from them considering the fact that this is the first time that we’ll see a series of LAN events happening after the pandemic shut it all down. Seeing them actually join in on the Esports fun is nothing but good news to say the least.
The original recruitment post was written down by Saul Ashon himself, the main manager for Fortnite and FIFA related activities, so we all know that this is legit.
On top of that, what’s interesting to note here is that amongst their requirements they actually didn’t resort to only asking for London-based players to join their roster, but instead they went with people from all around the globe to represent them.
This is great news, especially considering the fact that they also asked the players to be over 15 years of age which means that they’ll most likely be relocated at their headquarters there in London.
Manchester City also stated that they’re now actively looking to add a representative for them online and on all social medias which is great because it’ll again bring a lot more exposure to the field overall.
This is most definitely the start of something big because we’ve never gotten any mainstream sports team showing this much interest into joining the niche. We’re looking forward to seeing how they do and especially who else will be joining their roster in the near future.
