Manchester City Esports, the gaming arm of the Manchester City soccer team, has begun searching for a professional Fortnite player to join the organization’s esports squad. This move comes as part of the club’s expansion into the world of competitive video games.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old to enter the competition. To be considered, individuals must fill out a form online while also submitting a two-minute-long compilation of personal achievements in Fortnite.
“We’re looking for someone to join the team at Manchester City Esports as our first ever professional Fortnite player,” it reads on the Manchester City Esports form. “If you think you’ve got what it takes to represent the Premier League Champions, enter below! Good Luck.”
Manchester City Esports is one of a few soccer organizations offering esports opportunities outside of the world of FIFA. Other clubs that have an extensive esports offering include Wolves, AS Monaco, and Schalke 04.
