Time flies when you’re having fun and what could be more enjoyable than taking over the esports industry with more trophies than we know what to do with (and plenty more to come). On the 23rd of July, Fnatic celebrated its 15th birthday which left us in a reflective mood.

When 18-year-old Sam Mathews sold his car to fund a trip to a tournament for his newly formed team, he couldn’t have began to fathom what Fnatic would come. He could not have imagined that Fnatic would raise $19 million in funding with operations based around the world spanning from USA to China. He would never have guessed that Fnatic’s name would permanently be etched in the history books after becoming the first ever team to win three CS:GO Majors. He wouldn’t have believed that within a seven year time-span, Fnatic would be the only Western team to have appeared in, let alone have won, a League of Legends World Championship final.

And that is just a drop in the ocean of what this organisation has achieved. Over the last 15 years, we have created incredible memories together and we cannot wait to create many more. We will continue to innovate and push the industry forward as well as doing everything we can to earn more trophies and medals in all of the top esport titles.

The last 15 years we have shared have been so special. Through laughter or tears, you have stuck with us no matter what. You have grown and matured alongside us, every single person reading this is as much a part of Fnatic as the staff in the London office or the pro players you’ve cheered for.

So congratulations, it’s your birthday too and there’s been plenty of gifts already with our 15 social media giveaways! On top of that, get ready for a whole host of new Fnatic Gear and even more FNATIC15 goodies coming your way soon.

And of course, what’s a birthday without a party? We will be holding a celebratory extravaganza for all of our friends within the esports industry and some of biggest names from the scene will be appearing in more content online soon so get excited for that.

It really boggles the mind how far the this wonderful industry has come together. Being a part of this community is an absolute pleasure and we can’t wait to see what the next few years will bring.

Then. Now. Always Fnatic. #FNATIC15
