Birmingham United ESports Team Update
64 TEAMS. 16 ADVANCE. 1 VICTOR.
Hello, everyone – as our Birmingham United Legacy ESports Team moves along, we find we are now at 7 wins and 0 losses with 51 points!!! We have changed out some positions in the team so our subs can have practice, and even with SAT practice classes, finals, work, late night games, and homework with the new tri, the team keeps moving along midseason. We are a small but mighty team, but keeping humble, as you just never know!! Thank you to everyone for all the kind words and support!!
