The deal will see OnePlus continue to brand the front of the player jerseys, replacing ‘Fnatic.’ Logo. As part of the deal, the two will also focus their efforts on scouting mobile talent in both Europe and North America to elevate mobile gaming all around the world. The companies originally inked their deal in 2019.
“Fnatic aims to seek out, level up and amplify every gamer on the planet, and having OnePlus as our mobile partner allows us to reach and interact with the massive mobile gaming support base,” says Sam Mathews, founder and chief executive officer, Fnatic. “OnePlus is not only empowering our mobile gamers, but also providing all of our teams with the best possible device for when they are on the road, casually gaming or just keeping connected to our fans.”
The renewed partnership also extends Fnatic Mode, an advanced gaming mode that transforms a OnePlus smartphone into a dedicated gaming powerhouse. Fnatic Mode blocks notifications from apps, calls and other distractions while optimizing the device’s RAM, CPU and GPU for the greatest gaming experience possible.
“A leader in performance and hardware, OnePlus is committed to working with Fnatic and gamers alike to deliver the best smartphones for mobile gaming,” adds Eric Gass, director, global brand partnerships, OnePlus. “We believe that mobile gaming is the future and through the renewed partnership, OnePlus strives to equip players around the world with the tools necessary to advance their gameplay.”
