Gfinity has announced that world-renowned esports franchise, Fnatic, will join the Gfinity Elite Series season three, which is due to start in March. Gfinity saidthat London-based Fnatic was a professional esports organisation which had established itself as one of the leading franchises in global esports with teams competing in over 20 global competitions each year.
Founded on 23 July 2004, the team has players from around the world, across a variety of games, such as FIFA, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Dota 2. Earlier in 2017, Fnatic signed an exclusive partnership with Italian football club, AS Roma.
Gfinity chief executive Neville Upton said: 'Having established the Elite Series as one of the leading esports tournaments in the world, we couldn't be more excited by expanding and bringing in a team of Fnatic's calibre.
'With their inclusion, an already competitive roster and more announcements to come, this will be our most action-packed season to date.'
