Rollbit Sponsors FaZe Clan CS2 Team in Multi-Million Dollar Deal

Published: Jan 24, 2024

FaZe Clan’s Counter-Strike 2 team will now be sponsored by crypto casino and trading site Rollbit after the two agreed terms on a “multi-million dollar esports sponsorship deal.”

The deal is one of the biggest ever struck for a team sponsorship agreement in esports and will see Rollbit become a global partner with FaZe Clan’s CS2 team.

The partnership will focus on the team’s activities outside of the United States. FaZe Clan is partnered with DraftKings in the USA and has been since November 2021.

This is the second deal that Rollbit has struck within the past few weeks. Recently, Rollbit also secured a partnership with the current Serie A soccer champions SSC Napoli in another big money deal.

“Historic Announcement”

FaZe Clan’s attraction to companies like Rollbit is easily apparent.

Not only are they one of the best CS2 teams in the world today, currently sitting atop the CS2 Valve World Rankings, but they also have a large, global fanbase.

Erik Anderson, the current President of FaZe Clan commented:

“We believe this marks one of the largest sponsorship deals in the history of Counter-Strike and esports, as brands like Rollbit look for new ways to connect with large, highly engaged global audiences.

“Today’s historic announcement not only demonstrates our shared commitment to competition and excellent, but also ensures a strong enduring program for our fans.

“We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with Rollbit.”

“500 Million Social Followers”

The partnership announcement was met with equal excitement and enthusiasm at Rollbit, with their Head of Partnerships, Sam Norman, remarking:

“Rollbit is excited to partner with FaZe Clan, the current number one Counter-Strike team in the world. We have long admired FaZe Clan and look forward to joining their global audience of over 500 million social followers.

“We’re looking forward to supporting and cheering for the Counter-Strike team as they aim to uphold their top global ranking throughout this year’s season.

“This collaboration marks another milestone for Rollbit as we continue to expand our sponsorship portfolio with other leading sports organisations.”

Exciting Season Ahead

The new sponsorship deal puts considerable financial backing behind the FaZe Clan CS2 team. Although ranked first in the world, they lost the BLAST Premier World Final to Team Vitality in December and there’s no doubt that the team will want to go one better next year.

The FaZe CS2 team are currently in action at the BLAST Spring Groups 2024 tournament in Copenhagen.
