Esports organizations compete with each other not only on tournaments, but also in streaming. Many clubs sign not only teams in different disciplines, but popular content creators as well, thus expanding their presence in the world of video games. Here are the top organizations on Twitch in February 2021.
Disclaimer. The rating is based on the sum of hours that viewers have spent on broadcasts of streamers during the month. Esports viewership statistics were not included.
In February, TSM became the leader among esports organizations on Twitch with 29.5M hours watched. TSM is one of the leaders among clubs by number of streamers: over 60 content creators broadcast last month for TSM, including League of Legends and Valorant players, as well as variety streamers.
Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura became the most popular streamer of TSM with 3.9 million hours watched. The chess player took part in the coverage of PogChamps 3, and also won the Twitch Rivals Hand & Brain Showdown, where he played in a duet with Hutch.
The second place went to Luminosity Gaming with 27.3M hours watched. Canadian esports organization is ranked that high thanks to xQc who has been the most popular streamer on Twitch for a while now. He alone brought the club 18.2M hours watched. It’s also worth noting, that Luminosity had two times less active streamers compared to TSM in February.

Third most popular Twitch community among esports clubs was NRG Esports with 23M hours watched. In February, 39 content makers were streaming for the club, the most popular of which were sodapoppin, Clix and HusKerrs.
The 4th place in the rating went to FaZe Clan (15.4M hours watched), and three other organizations fought for the 5th place: the difference between them was less than 167K hours watched. In the end, Cloud9 got ahead and finished 5th with 13.3M hours watched.
Note that the top 10 includes two clubs not from Europe or North America. The Brazilian organization LOUD is mainly composed of streamers, but has a professional League of Legends team, so it entered the chart and took the 7th position with 13.1M hours watched. The main content maker of the club was Coringa (7.9M HW), was 4th most popular streamer on Twitch in February.
8th place went to the Japanese multigaming DeToNator: 9.4M hours watched. The club's teams compete in popular Asian esports disciplines, and its most popular streamer is fps_shaka, who mostly plays Apex Legends.
The top 10 was closed by Team Liquid with 7.5M hours watched. It is noteworthy that Liquid became the leader by the number of active streamers in February (100 content makers) among esports clubs, but individually its content creators were inferior to colleagues from other clubs: Liquid's leader Rakin had only 574.7K hours watched in February.
Note that several streamer associations/clubs finished just outside the rating, including OTK and Method who have World of Warcraft teams. 100 Thieves, T1, Complexity Gaming, Team Vitality and French clubs Solary and Karmine Corp were also quite close to the top 10.
It is noteworthy that the Fnatic has two communities on Twitch: the one of the same name and the Fnatic Network, which exclusively includes streamers (without esports players). Fnatic Network has bypassed the main team of the club by hours watched and finished in top 20.
