Fnatic’s founder is not happy about Cloud9 taking the London Overwatch League spot

Fnatic founder Sam Mathews has responded to the news that Cloud9 have bought the Overwatch League franchise spot in London.

It was a surprising announcement considering Fnatic are the biggest esports organisation based in London. They have offices there and the Bunkr event space.

Sam tweeted the following:

His tweet implies that Fnatic had negotiated with Blizzard for a spot, but hadn't been informed it'd been given to Cloud9 - until now.

Sam also tweeted Cloud9 founder and CEO Jack Etienne with a seemingly sarcastic comment:

Etienne said in the original announcement: "We have a massive fanbase in Europe already, and London, in particular, I believe is under-served and doesn't have an esports team to call its own."

It's not clear if Etienne was making a sly dig at Fnatic or if he genuinely doesn't know Fnatic are based here, but you'd think a person of Jack's calibre in esports would know that London is home to Fnatic.

Jack has not yet responded to Sam's tweets, though he did tweet a picture of an old London bus.

We've reached out to both parties for further comment.
