      Esports, or electronic sports, has become a booming industry in recent years. With millions of fans tuning in to watch professional gamers compete in popular games like League of Legends, Dota 2, and Overwatch, it’s no surprise that esports teams have become a lucrative business. But just how many of these teams are actually profitable?

      To answer this question, we need to take a closer look at the esports industry as a whole. According to a report by Newzoo, the global esports market is expected to reach $1.08 billion in 2021, with North America accounting for the largest share of revenue. This growth is driven by a number of factors, including the increasing popularity of esports among younger audiences, the rise of mobile gaming, and the growing number of esports tournaments and leagues.

      However, despite the industry’s rapid growth, not all esports teams are profitable. In fact, many teams struggle to make ends meet, relying on sponsorships and prize money to stay afloat. This is due in part to the high costs associated with running an esports team, including player salaries, travel expenses, and equipment costs.

      That being said, there are some esports teams that have managed to turn a profit. These teams tend to be the ones that have established themselves as top competitors in their respective games, attracting a large fan base and securing lucrative sponsorships. For example, the League of Legends team T1 (formerly known as SK Telecom T1) has won multiple world championships and boasts a large following in South Korea, making it one of the most successful and profitable esports teams in the world.

      Another factor that can contribute to a team’s profitability is its ability to diversify its revenue streams. Some esports teams have branched out into areas like content creation, merchandise sales, and event hosting, allowing them to generate additional income beyond prize money and sponsorships.

      Overall, while there are certainly esports teams that are profitable, the majority of teams are still struggling to make a profit. As the industry continues to grow and evolve, it will be interesting to see how teams adapt and innovate in order to stay competitive and financially viable.
