FaZe Clan has revealed their 2019 Team Jersey that will be worn by all of their esports squads moving forward. 

The North-American based organization has experimented with a number of different team jerseys designs over the years – recently donning black t-shirts and hoodies with a white logo instead of a traditional sports-like jersey.

Now, they have made the switch back to a normal jersey by taking some inspiration from an iconic Call of Duty weapon skin. 

FaZe Clan have used a number of unique different jerseys over the years.

The jersey is labeled as the FaZe Clan Tiger Camo and was unveiled shortly after the organization announced their newest sponsorship deal – linking up with Japanese car manufacturer Nissan.

Nissan’s logo gets a healthy spot on the team’s newest jersey – sitting on the right-hand side. The sponsor is across from the flag of the country a certain player is representing, which varies from team to team, and sits just above the GFUEL logo that gets pride of place in the middle. 

However, unlike some other team jerseys, the FaZe logo isn’t hidden away in a corner. Instead, the well-known emblem is plastered across the front of the shirt – blending in with the Red Tiger detail. 

FaZe ClanThe jersey is already available on the FaZe shop.

The jersey is currently for sale on the FaZe Clan website, accompanied by plenty of promotional photos showing off all the key details of the new shirt – including how it looks from behind and smaller, eye-catching details including a variation of the FaZe logo. 

Fans may not have to wait long to see the jersey in action in a competitive setting. FaZe Clan’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster takes part in the Blast Pro Series event in São Paulo, Brazil on March 22 – and could debut the jersey there.

OpTic Chicago’s Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper has revealed that he thinks the Atlanta FaZe will be the team to beat in the Call of Duty League’s 2021 season, citing how similar the two teams are.

A seven-year veteran in professional Call of Duty, FormaL boasts a wealth of expertise and some interesting insights. Excited for Black Ops Cold War and a refreshed CDL roster, back under the OpTic banner, the 2017 World Champion broke down his expectations for the 2021 season on an episode of “The Bakery” podcast.

Tucked in between romantic stories of trying to hide his gaming career from a crush and resisting Seth ‘Scump’ Abner’s kiss attempts, FormaL discussed the upcoming competitive season. With former teammate Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson moved over to Atlanta, OpTic’s AR revealed that FaZe are the biggest concern in 2021 — not the 2020 champion Dallas Empire.

With the league transitioning to 4 vs. 4 and Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War, FormaL believes that Chicago is primed to win CDL Champs, but that Atlanta is the toughest test ahead.

For mobile users, segment begins at 39:45.

Like sniping from the safety of a head glitch, FormaL did not hesitate at all when asked who would Chicago considers the most troubling team in 2021: “Definitely FaZe. FaZe is just another powerhouse … They’re pretty well-rounded, they got an insane amount of talent, they all want to play with each other. It’s just how our team is.”

Pinpointing FaZe’s roster balance, FormaL elaborated that the inclusion of Arcitys simply adds a new element to the competition between Chicago and Atlanta: “Alec’s a really good friend of mine. It’s gonna be really fun to play against him the whole year. You’ve got the Simp, aBeZy duo, you’ve got the Cellium thing … it’s gonna be a good rivalry for sure.”

In 2020, Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr and Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris were one of the best SMG duos in the CDL while McArthur ‘Cellium’ Jovel was an MVP candidate (alongside Simp) in the flex role. When he spoke with Dexerto back in July, Cellium also told us that he thought Arcitys was the best AR in the league.

While respectful of the talent and balance this new FaZe roster enjoys, FormaL was unfazed when asked who wins CDL Champs 2021: “We do. 100 percent.” This coincides with his earlier explanation that the change to 4 vs. 4 suits a Chicago team that prefers that style, is excited to reunite with Dashy, and enjoys Treyarch titles.

Last year, the Empire came first, FaZe came second, and Chicago (at that point, the Huntsmen) came third. This year, FormaL expects to win, FaZe to repeat with silver, and it doesn’t even seem like third place is on his radar: “I don’t know who the f**k comes third, Paris?”
