5+ Best WordPress Clan Themes for 2020

For this round-up, we tried really hard to gather up the best WordPress clan themes for gaming communities that the market had to offer. We came up with five. Four excellent clanwar themes, and one that’s something a bit different (in that it’s not a clan theme, or a community gaming in the eSports sense).

If this isn’t your first stop, odds are you’ve already seen these selections elsewhere. Maybe that indicates there’s an opportunity here for an enthusiastic WordPress developer, or maybe there’s just not much demand for this sort of thing. Maybe everyone in the gaming and MMORPG still favors Drupal.

Something else worth noting: some of the best clan themes are all built by the same team: the talented folks at Skywarrior. They’ve got a few themes we didn’t list here worth checking out. We thought we’d just provide a shout out instead of listing one developer’s entire catalog.

Worth noting: you can add some clan or eSport to any theme with the Game Planner plugin. So if you don’t find anything you dig here, that might be an option worth considering.

Also, don’t miss our list of the best gaming magazine themes.
