To connect with sports audiences last year, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Juju Smith-Schuster launched Team Diverge, an athlete-led gaming entertainment and lifestyle company, and Green Bay Packers’ Marquez Valdes-Scantling created his own esports team with Subnation. The Green Bay Packers also hosted a live Call of Duty tournament on Twitch, and several other athletes opened Twitch accounts soon after, racking up subscribers.
