Discord Partnering With Esports Teams For Official Channels

Discord has announced today that they are pairing with major esports teams like the San Francisco Shock and Team Liquid for official channels within the chat program.

The chat program popular with gamers has been making moves in the last year toward verified channels for games, developers, bands, and all sorts of official communities. This initiative is in line with that, allowing esports teams to talk directly with the community and allows fans to speak with their favorite teams.

According to Discord, “almost every team in the Overwatch league” is taking part, as are many popular teams in other games and genres. This is the full list Discord provided:
