The explosion of esports in the last few years has started to garner the attention of major sports organizations and others from around the world. Events and competitions now hold prize purses of millions and the job of “professional gamer” is now truly a 'thing' that some strive for. However, behind the scenes are the organizations that they belong to. The powerhouses at home that keep everything running smoothly for these mega gamers and keep them blazing through the others out there. There is no shortage of eSports organizations today around the world. Anyone that follows esports in the slightest can easily name several off the top of their head. So, it can be a daunting task to pull your organization up above the fray at times.
Since the world of eSports has been growing so fast, it was only natural that an awarding body would come about to recognize the best of the best. In 2016, the first esports Award show recognized “top class performance and innovation” from players, game developers, media, hardware developers, and other areas of the esports world. In fact, several of our FaZe Clan esports professionals have been nominated in the last two years. Ever since that first award show, it has been an honor to be nominated for any award through their organization and an even bigger distinction to win.
In July 2018, FaZe Clan received a nomination for esports Organization of the Year 2018 and we were ecstatic. Just a couple of days ago, on September 13th, 2018, we were notified that we had made it to the finalists list for this award. 2018 will mark the first year that there will be an award for esports Organization of the year and we truly hope to win. Even if we don't, we are in some amazing company with other organizations, as well as individual players, media organizations, broadcasters, and even events themselves.
FaZe Clan works tirelessly both in front of, and behind, the cameras to ensure that our professional gamers have everything they need. Our teams have crushed their rivals in multiple competitions, forcing some insane battles and just jaw dropping shots. There have been screams of joy and screams of defeat, but we are always there for our teams. As are the multitude of others out there with winning teams. If you would like to keep up with the eSports Awards and how both our organization and our team members are doing, plus vote on the Play of the Month and more, make sure that you check out Esportsawards.com. Esports Awards will also have a live stream of the award show in November and we hope that you will all watch and cheer us on.
