Fnatic has recently announced their partnership with Azubu.tv. The organization's pro gamers will soon begin streaming on the platform, joining Counter Logic Gaming and Azubu-sponsored Taipei Assassins and Snipers. Neither organization's announced when the players will begin conducting streams, but the Azubu.tv 2.0 revamp is expected to be launched later this month. Said Fnatic General Manager Danijel Remus:
Today marks a new milestone for our organization as we begin a partnership with Azubu. We believe that, together with Azubu, we will be able to ensure the best experience for our fans when it comes to high quality streaming of our players. We also look forward to hearing your feedback as we embark on this new, exciting venture.
Azubu Media's come under scrutiny as its flagship platform's update nears its debut. OnGamers has recently interviewed Azubu CEO Ian Sharpe, touching upon both their recent hiring of Leaguepedia staff as well as the background on parent organization Sapinda Group. As discussed by Richard Lewis of Esports Heaven, the organization's come under controversy in the past: the company's Korean branch was suddenly closed in early 2013. Their recent acquisition of former Leaguepedia staff was not without controversy either, as access was revoked from site founder Matt Gunnin, and a portion of the staff split off to found competing site EsportsPedia.
The Fnatic and Azubu partnership comes just months after Fnatic's recent AVAST sponsorship.
