Fnatic founder Sam Mathews has confirmed that the organization has started up a new gaming house in Los Angeles, California.
Speaking in an interview with Yahoo Esports, Mathews revealed that Fnatic’s Overwatch team will be based in the house.
“It’s unannounced, but our Overwatch team is American and currently they’re in Korea. Esports is based in LA really, in the US. There’s a lot of esports brands out here, game developers. So it makes quite a lot of sense to have our US-based esports team in the US capital of esports. We’re going to be announcing it… in the next month or so.”
Fnatic’s current Overwatch line-up listed on their website consists of Casey “Buds” McIlwaine, Matthew “coolmatt69” Iorio, Faraaz “Stoop” Waris, Scott “Custa” Kennedy, Oliver “Vonethil” Lager, and Robert “roflgator” Malecki.
Just this morning Fnatic announced its partnership with football club AS Roma to launch its FIFA team. Mathews shed more light on the details of the partnership in an interview with Yahoo Esports, which you can read more about here.
