Guild Esports, a UK-based organisation co-owned by David Beckham, has launched a new online esports training subscription service.
The online esports training subscription service is called the “Guild Esports Academy”, and is an online training course for players to get feedback and training from some of the players from the organisation, with the goal to help create the esports stars of tomorrow.
Guild Esports Academy welcomes budding players aged 11+, and provides a range of resources designed to nurture their learning and life skills, as well as gaming abilities.
Academy members will be able to access detailed training programmes, designed to improve specific areas of play. They will also be able to test their skills in tournaments and have gameplay performance analysed by Guild’s team of experts.
Guild’s vision is to use its unique academy structure to find the next generation of talent within esports by scouting players showing the most potential. These players will be offered live player development, greater 1-2-1 support, and invitations to boot camps to participate in local area network (LAN) tournaments. This is part of Guild Esports’ path to pro strategy – using its in-house talent scouts to recruit the next generation of players.
The Academy is launching first with Fortnite & Rocket League specific training, with more esports to follow in the next six months, including FIFA and Valorant.
