Biggest Esports Teams by Social Media Following


Esports is becoming more and more popular by the day. With the recent influx of sponsorships, partnerships, media coverage and more; esports organizations are bigger now than ever. This year we saw many of the massive esports organizations partner with major investors to grab their spot in some of esports most lucrative markets. We saw national teams go international.

There are many factors that go into place when determining the “biggest esports team” – earnings, numbers of teams in different titles, social media following, employees and so on. This is just one way to look at each esports teams size by comparing social media followers. Currently we are comparing Twitter followers, Instagram followers, YouTube subscribers and Twitch followers.

Please keep in mind that many of these organizations have secondary brands that they own. For now, we are only tracking the primary accounts for each esports organization. Twitch followers is based upon the main Twitch account for the respective organization, not the total followers of the team. If you would like to see your favorite organization added to the list leave it in a comment below.

This data is live, and pulled from the respective properties API. We will be adding more social media platforms as we gain access to the APIs.
