FaZe Clan, an outfit considered to be one of the biggest esports organizations in the world has entered into a 'multi-million dollar' sponsorship deal with new cryptocurrency casino, Rollbit.
The deal will see Rollbit take on the role of sponsor for FaZe Clan's Counter-Strike 2 team around the globe.
Counter-Strike 2 is a game developed by Valve and is the competitive successor to the immensely popular Counter Strike: Global Offensive otherwise known as CS:GO. FaZe Clan have been on an impressive run during the early days of Counter-Strike 2 already winning two top tournaments including the CS Asia Championship 2023 and the Thunderpick World Championship 2023.
Rollbit was established in 2020 as a crypto casino and trading platform on the Ethereum blockchain. They have since grown their operations to become one of the major names within the crypto market.
Announcing the deal, Sam Norman, Head of Partnerships at Rollbit said: “Rollbit is excited to partner with FaZe Clan, the current number one Counter-Strike team in the world. We have long admired FaZe Clan and look forward to joining its global audience of over 500 million social followers.
"We’re looking forward to supporting and cheering for the Counter-Strike team as they aim to uphold their top global ranking throughout this year’s season. This collaboration marks another milestone for Rollbit as we continue to expand our sponsorship portfolio with other leading sports organisations.”
The exact financial details of the deal are unknown, but it is being touted as one of the biggest in esports history.
FaZe Clan only relatively recently stepped into the FGC with the signing of Mexican prodigy, Edgar 'Sparg0' Valdez. He is currently the only fighting game player on the team, but it is believed they could go even further with the FGC growing ever so steadily with the release of Street Fighter 6, Tekken 8 and the much anticipated release of Project L.
