Why Did BBL Esports Withdraw From Red Bull Home Ground?

Semih “LEGOO” Selvi, the team captain of BBL Esports, has announced on his Twitch stream that the team has withdrawn from the tournament. After the announcement, LEGOO stated that the reason for this is ‘not getting invited to the main event of the tournament’.

BBL Esports thinks that there is an injustice in the tournament. The team was the champion of First Strike Turkey; so the players all agree that while Futbolist gets invited while BBL Esports does not, is unfair. The team captain added that this is no direct harassment towards the Futbolist team and that they respect them very much; the injustice in the tournament is the reason for their withdrawal.

While the topic is very controversial, both teams have their points. Also, Red Bull is the official sponsor of Futbolist.

We wish success to all participants in the tournament.
