Guild Esports (Guild) is a new, global esports business headquartered in London and co-owned by David Beckham.

Core to Guild’s strategy of developing a best-in-class esports team, is its establishment of a unique, UK-based talent pipeline for esports athletes, based on the traditional sports academy model. Youth talent will be coached and mentored by industry leaders to enhance their skill sets for professional competition.
