Ever wondered who the most popular teams in esports are? It’s impossible to count every fan of every team, but we can see who are the biggest esports teams with the most Twitter followers.
There are some surprising results- CLG, Team Liquid, and NaVi fall just outside of the list despite having big followings in multiple esports, but overall these are the top 10 most popular esports teams on Twitter.
1. FaZe Clan – 3.45 million
@FaZeClan started off as one of the biggest Call of Duty teams and built an empire through YouTube, with content creators like FaZe Banks and FaZe Rain still getting huge hits. They still have top 3 teams in CS:GO and CoD: WWII.
FaZe Clan are eliminated from contention at @CODWorldLeague's Stage 2 Playoff, finishing in the Top 6.

2. OpTic Gaming – 3.29 million
OG are FaZe Clan’s rivals in everything, including Twitter followers. @OpTicGaming has some of the best teams in Halo 5, Call of Duty, Dota 2, Gears of War, and Overwatch (as the Houston Outlaws).
Thank you to everyone who supported our Gears of War squads at the Gears Pro Circuit event in NOLA 💚🖤
Big shoutout to our partners at @turtlebeach, @DXRacer and @ScufGaming for providing us the highest quality equipment to practice and dominate with.#Greenwall
