Hercules goes eSport!

At JS Hercules we do a lot of cool things! We see football as a global tool for change and our football club as the local representative of change for good. Our vision already shows in the projects like Lähirähinä, but this year we decided to do something completely different. We have been following with great interest the fastest growing sport in the world and we could no longer hold ourselves back, but to join the global movement of eSports!

We are proud to present: JS Hercules eSport Division – the first eSport team in Oulu!

Building the Community

JS Hercules eSport project is a natural way for our football club to reach out to younger group of fans who share the passion for sports, games and gaming. We are planning big things during the upcoming years in the field of eSports and we see Oulu in the heart of the progress of the whole Finnish scene.

This year JS Hercules eSport Division will focus on connecting with the local fans and building the eSport community in Oulu through multiple events. These events will also be our talent tournaments where we look out for the best gamers to take on the challenge of becoming an eSports professional.

Looking for Talent

We send out an open invitation to all players of Counter Strike Global Offensive, League of Legends, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Overwatch, FIFA, NHL and other games who dream of a career in professional eSports.
