The partnership between the NACL and Wolves Esports will be promoted throughout the 20/21 NACL Championship series, which will see four separate gaming tournaments (PUBG, Rocket League, FIFA 21 and Fortnite) offer a range Wolves related prizes, including the opportunity to try out for professional Wolves Esports teams.

Esports Insider Says: Wolves are a Premier League club who are heavily involved in esports across the globe, spanning from the UK to China, so it’s no surprise to see them expand their reach west, to North America. This partnership will be beneficial for both sides, as talent will look to be uncovered and provide pathways into professional esports.
