1st FC Kaiserslautern launches eSports project
Since last Friday, it is known that the four-time German champion, 1. FC Kaiserslautern, will enter the eSports sector from April.
Last Friday, the 26.02.2021, the virtual general meeting of the 1st FC Kaiserslautern took place. At this meeting, board member Gero Scira announced that the red devils will enter the eSports sector from April 2021.
Adventurous experiments are to be avoided in Kaiserslautern. They want to concentrate on the business of eFootball fully.
They have followed the growing interest closely and decided to integrate an eSports department into the club. However, they do not want to rely on prominent players from the scene, like other professional clubs. On the other hand, it is essential to those responsible that the team consists of players who can identify with the club and its values.
It's not just performance at the console that counts. Interaction and communication should play a role in the selection of potential team members. For interested parties, a screening tournament is to take place shortly.
The new eSport team of the traditional club aims to hold FIFA events with and for the supporters of FCK. Further information, for example, regarding an entry into the tournament scene, is still unknown.
