While Fortnite may not have the storied history of esports that a game like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) does, it is still one of the hottest spectator sports out there for fans of the battle royale.

Many recognisable esports teams have put forward rosters in the past few years to compete in Fortnite tournaments, including bigger names and newcomers to the pro-competitive scene.

The top teams include those who dominate in other competitive game scenes, like NRG, FaZe, and Team Liquid.

Check out a list of esports teams who play Fortnite below, including current rosters (at the time of writing), notable placements, and more.
