Premier League football club Manchester City have teamed up with FaZe Clan once again for another collaboration, and some of the teams top players have shown off the new gear.
FaZe Clan’s rise from a Call of Duty sniping clan on YouTube to one of the most recognizable brands in esports, and gaming has secured them a number of opportunities outside of the endemic gaming space.
Man City, on the other hand, have been trying to move more into the esports & gaming area themselves, backing a FIFA esports team and previous collaborations with FaZe.
Some of their biggest stars are also big gamers – Sergio Aguero is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, in addition to being the club’s all-time leading goalscorer.
The two teams first announced their surprise partnership in September 2019. At the time, Man City said “Esports is the world’s fastest growing spectator sport and this collaboration with FaZe Clan marks the start of an exciting new chapter in Manchester City’s esports journey.”

On December 12, the same day as they will face their city-rivals Man United in the Premier League, Man City and FaZe Clan’s latest collaboration will go on sale.
The new ‘FaZeCity’ collection went on sale on December 10, and includes a variety of clothing and accessories with FaZe branding.
To promote the collection, City stars Bernardo Silva, Rodri and Joao Cancelo all showed off the lineup on Instagram.

Last time out, Man City actually wore training tops with FaZe logos for a Premier League game. Whether that happens again for their derby match against United remains to be seen.
Their partnership with FaZe Clan was extended for a year back in June, so fans of either organization can expect more collaborations in the future.
