BUDGET

HOW DOES THE TEAM MANAGE ITS BUDGET?

During the 12 months, the athletes will not just be trained to become professional players, but will also have financial challenges to overcome. They’ll work out a budget together and keep track of their spending.

What does being a professional Esports player mean financially? How much can you win at competitions? How can you work out a sensible budget in a shared flat? The Esports experiment provides the opportunity to answer these questions from the perspective of a Swiss Esports team for the first time.

The team will transparently document its income and expenditure. The Esports players will demonstrate how easy it is to manage day-to-day finances in the digital world – with the help of digital products and services from PostFinance that make managing day-to-day finances very straightforward.
