The Most Viewed Esports Organization of 2019 REVEALED
2019 was a great year for esports and although CS:GO didn’t win the prize of most watched esport of the year, the top organizations and teams had managed to rack up some serious hours watched, on Twitch.
In fifth place was Astralis who pipped Natus Vincere to their spot by a mere 300,000 hours and finished the year on an impressive 50.1 million hours watched.
Fourth place belongs to T1 who surpassed their rivals in fith by a staggering 22 million hours and racked a total of 72.1 million hours watched, combined. This is largely thanks to their successful Legue of Legends team.
Fnatic are next on this list, in third place, who are a huge organization spanning a total of 8 teams. Fnatic also has a very accomplished League of Legends team, as well as their renowned CS:GO team, which has certainly helped them rack up the handsome sum of 73.3 million watched hours.
Now we’re onto some serious viewership hours recorded and G2 Esports are comfortably sat in second place. Esports Charts thinks social media and online competitions have certainly been a deciding factor for G2, along with their superb League of Legends team that attributed most of their viewing hours to the Mid-Season Invitational, the Spring and Summer Splits and a large portion of the 2019 World Championships. G2’s decorated CS:GO team has also been relatively successful throughout 2019.
In first place, by a long shot, was the one and only, Team Liquid. With a combined watched hours of 124.4 million, they beat second place rivals by a whopping 22.3 million hours. Team Liquid can thank their success to having teams in 14 of the biggest esports titles on the planet, including Dota 2 – where their team had made it into the The International finals. Their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team was extremely productive throughout 2019 and even their League of Legends team managed to reach the Mid-Season Invitational finals.
Off the back of their success, Team Liquid have no plans to slow down and are even seeking new opportunities across new games and further regions.
2020 is already shaping up to be a very interesting year indeed for these esports teams.
