Wolves launch esports tournament portal
Working in collaboration with esports partner Bundled, the Premier League club have launched the platform for users to take part in gaming events online. Initially the portal, which is also supported by 4Entertainment, is hosting tournaments on the FIFA 20 title but more competitions have been promised by Wolves.
The portal is free to use and will host tournaments for all levels of gamers, with prizes on offer for winners of each tournament.
Wolves are marketing the new service by enlisting a number of first team and academy players for a tournament on 26th March which is being aired on their esports team’s Twitch channel. That event comes after the inaugural supporters’ tournament on the same day.
Wolves have been building out their esports division since signing their first gamer for the FIFA title in September 2018. The club now boast two players in their FIFA team, as well as a China-based outfit in partnership with Weibo eSports Club for the FIFA Online 4 title. They also have a Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) team that competes in the Chinese top tier for that game.
