London-based organisation Fnatic has partnered with gaming course provider GamerzClass.
As part of the deal, FIFA player Donovan “Tekkz” Hunt will produce his own “educational master” course.
The new course taught by Tekkz will have a focus on attacking, with the build up, formation structures, finishing, and how best to develop an aggressive playstyle on the pitch all explored and explained. He recently finished second in the Xbox One FUT 20 Champions Cup Stage IV in Paris and is widely considered one of the best FIFA players in the world.
Fnatic is no stranger to GamerzClass, with former Dota 2 top laner Paul “Soaz” Boyer, former Fortnite player Christoffer “Jarl” Snejbjerg, and current Dota 2 offlaner Daryl Koh “ICEICEICE” Pei Xiang all having courses available for their respective titles.
In a blog post, Fnatic said its partnership with GamerzClass “won’t stop at Tekkz’ master course,” with hopes of its players from other titles producing their own courses in the future. As well as FIFA, the organisation competes in League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Rainbow Six Siege, Fortnite, Apex Legends, and PUBG Mobile.
Esports Insider says: GamerzClass has a brilliant premise, though we can’t attest to how effective it has been so far for budding professional players. Tekkz is one of the biggest names in FIFA and commands a lot of respect from his scene so we’re sure this will be a popular course.
