In terms of partnerships and collaborations, 2020 has been a busy year for FaZe Clan. The organisation has teamed up with a number of notable names, including deals with Verizon, G FUEL, Sugar23 or CTRL.
Esports Insider says: Over the last 10 years FaZe Clan has proved to be one of the most influential esports organisations in the industry. Through a number of collaborations with partners like Kappa, G Fuel, Manchester City FC and many more, FaZe Clan has become a sought-after fashion and lifestyle brand and the revealed G-SHOCK custom timepiece is only the proof of it.
