Den walisiske Real Madrid-spilleren Gareth Bale har avslørt via Twitter at han nå starter et nytt e-sportlag ved navn Ellevens Esports, og det skjer via et samarbeid med 38 Entertainment.
Laget ble dannet i november, og de har allerede konkurrert i Milano med to etablerte spillere i FIFA eClub World Cup, nemlig "PResende7" fra Brasil og "EthxnH" fra Wales.
"I naturally progressed to watching FIFA and the FIFA Global Series. The competitive side was fascinating, so I decided I wanted to provide an opportunity for gamers who take esports seriously and want to play for a professional organisation at the highest level. On the pitch, my goal is always to win. With Ellevens Esports, that winning attitude is just as important. There are similarities between football and esports in that it takes real dedication and sacrifice to reach the top of your game. I'm really excited to now have my own team and I'm looking forward to Ellevens competing in major esports events all over the world," sier Bale om overgangen til e-sport.
