Loco, a live game streaming app, has entered into a long-term partnership with Fnatic, one of the world’s preeminent e-sports organisations.
Fnatic has games such as League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Dota 2, and more. The firm is now venturing into the PUBG Mobile e-sports space with their squad based out of India.
Under this new collaboration, Loco will be onboarding Fnatic India’s entire roster onto the app (which include some of India’s leading streamers and gamers), who will broadcast exclusive content on Loco. Both companies will also co-develop unique e-sports content together, including multiple tournaments and non-fiction shows.
Anirudh Pandita and Ashwin Suresh, Founders, Pocket Aces, said, “Fnatic and Pocket Aces share a common vision of building a sustainable e-sports ecosystem in India. We want to provide Indian e-sports and gaming fans, world-class gaming entertainment across formats and this partnership will ensure that this shared vision is realized very soon.
