Fnatic Hires Sports Scientists

Fnatic, the UK-based professional esports organisation, has started hiring sports scientists as part of their efforts to boost gamers’ performance and health. Fnatic currently has 60 esports players that are paid to play big titles such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, League of Legends and Apex Legends.

In order to keep their gamers on point, hiring sports scientists was Fnatic’s investment after reaching a 10 million USD fundraise. With many years of working experience with gamers, Fnatic knows how to invest in players. They also recently launched a new “High-Performance Unit”, where they observe sleep patterns and stress levels effect on players’ performance.

The esports market is estimated to be worth around 1.1 billion USD in 2020, according the market intelligence firm Newzoo. Given the size of the market, and the continuous expansion of it, it is not surprising esports organisations will invest in their gamers to give them a competitive edge.
