Hertha Berlin eSports Academy

Hertha Berlin founded the first Bundesliga eSports academy in 2018. Over 2,100 FIFA players competed for the chance to become eSports professionals with Hertha Berlin at several scouting events held in Berlin, Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The Hertha Berlin eSports academy is based on a holistic concept: in addition to game training, the programme also includes nutritional coaching, mental training, fitness sessions and instruction in media and social-media skills.
