Regardless if you are going to sign your first or biggest contract in esports, you need to pay attention to the content of the contract. Be aware and make sure that you understand the contract, your obligations, and that you believe the contract is fair. Remember that a correctly executed contract is legally binding where you are confirming the details and terms of the contract between you and the organisation.

Player contracts

A common misunderstanding about player contracts is that it is a standard document. There is no such thing as a standard player contract. If you are dealing with a professional organisation is the contract the first sign of what kind of organisation you are dealing with. If an organisations give you a statement such as “The contract means nothing, just sign it,” you shall be aware that this kind of behaviour usually leads to problems and misunderstandings.

If the contract’s content didn’t matter, there would not be any reason to draft a contract. Remember that the players are the organisations greatest asset in esports. The players win trophies and give the organisations value to sign sponsorships etc. Know your worth and never sign a contract until you carefully have reviewed the contract.

Remember that there often is a huge difference in the different games, such as League of Legends, Fortnite, CS:GO, FIFA 22. DOTA 2, Rocket League, Hearthstone, or Call of Duty.

Always understand what is expected of you and your teammates.
