Boca Juniors to enter CS:GO scene in 2021

The Buenos Aires giants will add to the ever-growing list of Argentinian sports clubs to dive into esports.

Boca Juniors will enter esports in 2021, the Argentinian sports club confirmed on Friday. Counter-Strike and League of Legends will be the first two games in which the Buenos Aires-based outfit will be represented in what will mark "the beginning of a new stage for the club."

Boca Juniors boast the most successful football team in Argentina with 69 titles, three more than cross-town rivals River Plate, who created an esports division in 2016 but only entered the CS:GO scene earlier this year.

The announcement will only add to the excitement and optimism surrounding the Argentinian esports landscape at the moment. Next week, Isurus and 9z will compete in the Regional Finals of the FlowFiReLEAGUE, a Latin American competition launched earlier this year that offered a spot in the recent BLAST Premier Fall Showdown. The first edition of the league will culminate in a $70,000 event in Buenos Aires that will also have BOOM and Isurus in attendance.

On Thursday, San Lorenzo, another one of the 'Big Five', a term that refers to the main football teams in Argentina, officially launched their League of Legends team. Next year, two Argentinian players will compete in the League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS): jungler Brandon "Josedeodo" Joel Villegas (FlyQuest) and support Leandro "Newbie" Marcos (Golden Guardians).

Boca said that the announcement of the club's esports squads will be made "very soon." According to Argentinian esports reporter Lucas Benaim, the CS:GO team will be coached by Elias "s1cop" Cisternas and will include Eduardo "⁠laser⁠" Chshekin and Facundo "⁠minimal⁠" Pereyra as players.

Not like there are a lot of good players(for now) in the Argentinian scene aside of 9z's and isurus's players or luken and meyern. So is hard to make a tier 1 team out of them.

Is because i dont like Football whatsoever, i only watch Argentina play and thats it. I dont really like such sport, and dont seem entertaining IMO, i'd rather watch rugby than football. Im more basketball/voley/handball.

wtf but not knowing la boca means that you do not live in buenos aires, it is the most famous neighborhood in the city
2020-12-07 14:46
Let's see, maybe they will make a team that isn't a contender for titles on the region (like Santos made on CS:GO) or will make one of the best on the region (like Flamengo did on LoL). I think the most important as a club that is the biggest argentinian is develop the scene (that is very weak).

It's not depressing to acknowledge reality. I was the defacto NA MDL dickrider before Valorant. Everyone knew me because I was the only person who watched NA MDL seriously. NA was lackluster BEFORE Valorant. There's nothing here but graveyards and bones. Our top talent in MDL (4pack) is under investigation for throwing. There's nothing here.

it would be good for media value but an argentino team is gonna need imports if they want to compete at tier 1 marketing wise it's not likely that an argentino team does amazingly like br teams
