FaZe Clan and Manchester City have furthered their partnership in a collaboration to celebrate global football in Fortnite with new in-game outfits, emotes and tournaments alongside more than 20 other top football clubs around the world.
To celebrate the launch, Manchester City and FaZe Clan will hold the 'FaZe City Cup' featuring Fortnite on January 21st.
The tournament will be the first Fortnite tournament held by Manchester City and FaZe Clan and will see the top 50 duos pairings (top 100 players) earn early access to the Manchester City skin and special in-game emote.
FaZe Clan Fortnite player FaZe Nate Hill is confirmed to participate, with more players to be announced soon. Players can check in-game for the latest information and start times.
The FaZe City Cup builds on FaZe Clan’s already successful partnership with Manchester City - which has created new experiences for fans of both esports and football since it began in 2019. Current City players, legends and esports players have teamed up with FaZe Clan talent to create engaging content and launch limited-edition product collaborations, as well as hosting each other at events in Manchester and Los Angeles.
"The FaZe City Cup featuring Fortnite is an important illustration of our groundbreaking partnership with Manchester City," says FaZe Clan CEO Lee Trink. "Alongside Manchester City, we are thrilled to be a part of a competitive tournament in Fortnite. We look forward to building this tournament and producing more entertaining competitions in the future.”
Nuria Tarre, Chief Marketing Officer at City Football Group, said: “The FaZe City Cup featuring Fortnite is an exciting first for the club in one of the most popular gaming titles globally and we hope fans worldwide will get involved in the competition and wear their Manchester City outfits in-game with pride.”
“Given their significant existing presence within Fortnite, we are delighted to partner with FaZe Clan on this competition. It is further testament to our partnership with FaZe Clan, through which we will continue to explore opportunities to bring our fans new and immersive ways to engage with the Club.”
Previous engaging and successful content between FaZe and the City Football Group has been seen over the past few years on Manchester City's official YouTube channel, and collaborated with current players.
