Today, Team Fnatic is a multi-division eSports team that participates in over seven divisions. So far, the organization has made over $17 million and holds the record for the 3rd most-watched western esports team in 2020. With over 33 million followers on social media, Team Fnatic is a famous esport team and definitely, a force to reckon.
FNC got into active eSports in 2006 after acquiring a World of Warcraft (WoW) team. The roster included Vo0, TooGood, and Ztrider, three of the best players at the time. The trio excelled in all top-tier competitions and bagged three titles. In the following year, Fnatic assembled a DotA team and quickly rose to be one of the fastest-growing eSports brands by adding several other top-rated esports divisions.
