An 8-year-old boy joins an eSports team and receives $33,000 just for entering

The boy, Joseph Deen and now known as 33 Gosu, has joined the team called Team 33.

Everyone who follows video games a little bit knows that electronic sports, also known as eSports, have been something to keep in mind for many years. They move masses, expectation and are capable of generating as much or more as the video game itself in which many compete and are broadcast.

But today we bring you the somewhat peculiar and different story, as Joseph Deen could make a difference at only 8 years old simply because of his age. The boy has signed an agreement with Team 33, for which he received a gaming team valued at more than $5,000 and $33,000 just for entering. In a press release announcing the deal, the team said that Joseph had been training since he was 6 years old.

“It’s a dream come true,” Joseph said when asked. “While other teams didn’t take me seriously because of my age, Team 33 recruited me through games at Fortnite and let me train and learn with them on a daily basis. I couldn’t be happier to become a member of the team.

“We’re beyond happy to have Joseph on our exclusive roster, as over the past few years we’ve been keeping this and more contracts a secret,” said Tyler Gallagher, CEO of Regal Assets and one of the founders of Team 33.

“We set out to train him over the last few years because young players are the future and we want to do that soon. He has shown incredible tenacity and commitment to the team over the past two years and has trained almost daily with the team. Now he has finally been rewarded and it is a momentous day for us,” added Gallagher.

Team 33 claims to be “currently focused on training its roster of players, but also looking for new talent through multiple games”. The team plans to finish and announce its roster in 2021, as it plans to compete in Fortnite, CS: GO, Dota 2, League of Legends, Call of Duty, and Valorant.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
