The connection between sponsors, teams, and aspiring pro players has become much easier. Guild Esports has launched a training academy focused on the growth of players, in, and out of the scene.
Since its birth, esports has come a long way from being the small community it once was. The scene is now globally recognized, respected, and supported by many big personalities, even outside of esports. Career opportunities in esports are now becoming more and more available, with new players wanting to shoot their shots.
However, the road to becoming a professional esports player is rarely easy. Most players grind hours upon hours, until teams take an interest in them. The grind to get recognized, maintaining your performances, all of that can be tough.
That being said, if you’ve wanted to take a shot at becoming a pro player, now’s your chance!. Guild Esports has found a way to make the bridge between teams, sponsors, and aspiring pro players closer. Their program, Guild Academy, aims to nurture the growth of its community, from players who wish to go professional, to its fanbase.
Co-owned by football legend David Beckham, the academy was inspired by his creation of football academies for future football stars. It aims to focus on younger talent, as shown by its offering to players as young as 11 years old.
The program doesn’t stop at honing your talents as a player either. Like I said, it aims to better your life, and make sure you’re at the top of your game everyday. Nutrition, exercise, psychological support, all of these will be given to you, with the guidance of the academy.
And not just that! As the academy expands, it will start introducing a tiered system to show who is the best of the best. Players who show potential, and promise will be given exclusive access to the physical headquarters of Guild Academy.
For now, the academy will offer programs in Fortnite, and Rocket League. However, Guild Esports aims to expand into other titles in the coming months.
So if you’d much prefer popping heads in Valorant, or smurfing on the rift in League of Legends, don’t worry! With how big both of those scenes are, chances are the academy will eventually include them as well.
Because Guild Esports launched an academy, the future looks bright for younger stars who have yet to show their potential. In the future, hopefully we’ll have even more academies that can help sharpen their talents, and make them legends.
