With rosters in League of Legends, CS:GO, Hearthstone, Super Smash Bros., Overwatch, Dota 2, Rocket League, Fortnite, PUBG, StarCraft II, and Call of Duty, the largest, highest-earning, and richest esports teams are displaying their skills at the most popular video games. While many are sponsored by large companies, some have been started by avid gamers in their homes. 

As of 2020, the most famous esports teams include Team Liquid, Cloud9, NRG esports, American group FaZe Clan, SK Telecom T1, OpTic Gaming, and Evil Geniuses, which feature some of the greatest pro gamers of all time. Representing Europe, Asia, Australia, the US, South America, and more, the top esports teams are from all over the world. Learn the names of good eSports orgs with this list, and maybe you'll find yourself on one of these clans in the future.
