The National Football League and FaZe Clan are teaming up to host a co-branded flag football game during the Super Bowl LVI experience, along with other initiatives in the future.
FaZe Clan is arguably one of the most influential esports organizations. They’ve extended their brand into a variety of fandoms by securing partnerships with Xbox, DraftKings, J-pop artists, and now the NFL.
The NFL and gaming have repeatedly attempted to cross-pollinate fanbases through partnerships with specific teams and streamers. Even before TimTheTatman signed with Complexity (an esports org affiliated with the Dallas Cowboys), the popular streamer was allowed to watch live NFL games on stream.
Now, the NFL and FaZe Clan are taking these collaborations to the next level. The two orgs are kicking off this partnership with a co-branded flag football game during the Super Bowl LVI experience.
