FreeSports Clubs - What are they?
Just like eSports Clans, a FreeSports Club is a group of players who wish to take in eSports activities, but rather, enjoy playing together in open battles. They are NOT allowed to participate in any eSports activities organized by the eSports Helpers Team.
How to join a FreeSports club?
Just like Clans or any other team, every FreeSports Club has its own set of rules to join the club. So to join a Free-Sports Club, you will need to check for any application information mentioned in the main posts of the first page of the Club topic. If you don't find any such information, then the Club is probably not recruiting or interested in hiring more members. In such a situation, you may also consider contacting the Leader of the Club via Forum PM regarding applications.
