Three Esportia teams have found success in the tournament

With only six days remaining in the ESL Masters, things could not be more exciting. The sixth day promised tension, and its results left hotly contested bracket to be played out over the remaining days. Six teams now stand ready to fight for a playoffs position.

The first two games allowed RCD Espanyol to equal ARG for the second place in the competition. Crazy Crew debuted beating ARG while RCD Espanyol eSports themselves took down Villarreal CF Esports, who are no longer eligible for the playoffs alongside Besiktas Esports.

FC Barcelona had already played the week before, and their players are focused on the DreamHack Pro Circuit in Dallas that week but still found time to beat ARG and Besiktas, securing first place in the regular season.

The third and final day FekyX Esports beat Getafe 2-0. This unexpected result created a five-way tie between second and sixth places. The decisive last day will feature the first Barcelona derby in esports history, Barça vs. Espanyol, starting 20:15 on the 6th.

Digital art, exhibitions, activities, conferences and a long list of esports come together for a new edition of DreamHack. This time around Dallas will host the event for three days which will see the celebration of the largest LAN party in the world. From Friday, May 31st to Sunday, June 2nd, gamers around the globe will be focused on DreamHack Dallas 2019,

A long line of esports will be played at the event; from Rocket league, with an exclusive competition where historic clubs such as FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain will compete, to others like the evergreen CS:GO and Supercell’s Brawl Stars. The best teams in the world will arrive in Dallas, full of ambition, with their eye on the million dollars to be handed out in prize money.

DreamHack is recognized internationally as the largest LAN party in the world. This aging, but not yet dead gamer tradition sees players bring their own computers to the event to play against each other locally. This allows players who would only play online to not only meet in person but compete in an ideal technological environment.

In 15 days four teams will move onto the playoffs

The fifth edition of the ESL Masters features a brand new Rocket League competition. On the second to last day, about a half of the competing teams were represented by Esportia.

Getafe opened the day with an impressive 2-0 win over Crazy Crew in a competition that will no doubt be important in determining which four teams move onto the playoffs. Meanwhile, Espanyol, who is tied with Getafe at nine points in the competition, beat FekyX Esports 2-1.

Villarreal got first victory of the season with a 2-0 over Beskitas, though the team is too far behind at this point to reach the playoffs on May 30th.

The most outstanding team is, without a doubt, FC Barcelona who enjoys a comfortable six-point advantage. Barca played two matches during the day beating both opponents, ARG and Besiktas, taking the top spot in the league and securing a place in the finals to be played the third weekend of June.

Working together with sports clubs is fundamental, in order to boost the professionalization of the sector and to increase its recognition

Recently the sports media have begun to understand the importance of esports. In a big step towards increasing the presence of esports in traditional sports spaces, last week Esportia Latam manager Dario Perez presented our newest project in the Latam market to ESPN Mexico’s audience.

Perez chatted on ESPN esports with Eitan Benezra and Andres Jamit about Esportia’s mission. Working together with sports clubs is fundamental, not only in order to boost the professionalization of the sector but also to increase its recognition among a public that currently doesn’t esports. In this context, traditional entities like sports clubs are indispensable since that can “Carry the flag” of esports before a larger audience.

Perez was accompanied by Hugo “Kiki” Abonza, player of Clash Royale for Chivas of Guadalajara. The player highlighted the forward-thinking nature of clubs working with Esportia and how they encourage more young people to participate in Clash Royale competitions in hopes of joining a team like Chivas.
