Man City esports team – a brief history

The Man City esports team had its beginnings in 2016 after they became the second UK football club to move into the space after West Ham started theirs earlier that same year. The first player signed by Man City esports was Kieran Brown, a professional FIFA player. Soon after, they got busy in the world of esports, competing in professional FIFA tournaments including the Global FUT Champions Cup. Since then they have expanded their player roster and currently have over 16 players on their books in various locations throughout the world.

Just recently, the Man City esports team signed their first-ever Fortnite player, 16-year-old Aidan ‘Threats’ Mong. He’s been signed on a one-year contract and Man City hopes the young e-athlete will continue their already impressive performance streak in the ever-popular Battle Royale.
