FaZe Clan (FaZe) is an American professional esports and entertainment organization. Originally founded in 2010 as FaZe Sniping, the group started as a Call of Duty clan. They quickly rose to fame through their YouTube content, with their trickshots and gameplay compilations on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Their focus on entertainment set them apart from other clans at the time and allowed them to become one of the most popular clans early in the decade. FaZe entered in competitive esports in 2012 with Call of Duty and Counter Strike: Global Offensive rosters. Their main competitive and entertainment focus is shooter games, but they also started to branch out to other style of games such as FIFA or Rocket League in 2017. As of today, FaZe Clan is one of the richest and the most popular esports organisations in the world. More than 20 different celebrities from numerous backgrounds (musicians, music executives, basketball players, soccer players...) invested into FaZe Clan at some point. FaZe also became the first esports organization to be listed on NASDAQ after the merge of their public company FaZe Holdings Inc. with B. Riley Principal 150 Merger Corp.
On April 17th, 2022, just before the start of Winners Semis at GENESIS 8, FaZe announced the signing of Sparg0 as their first FGC and Smash player. Along with the usual trailer reveal posted on social media, an additional trailer was aired for the people in the venue and on Beyond the Smash's stream.
