  • Twenty-two Fnatic Network talents will showcase and stream using Shure’s innovative MV7 dynamic microphone; a new streaming powerhouse inspired by the company’s iconic SM7B.
  • With easy setup, the hybrid XLR/USB Shure MV7 is the perfect choice for those just getting started with streaming, but also versatile enough to grow with you as your audio demands change over time.
  • Fnatic Network provides education and tools for up-and-coming content creators to help boost their performance through a career progression programme that can help them secure a contract with the organization.

Started September 6th, twenty-two members of Fnatic Network’s diverse array of talent are partnering with Shure to showcase how to get “perfect sound from imperfect rooms” and stream with the new Shure MV7 Podcast Kit. This joint initiative between Fnatic and Shure aims to help new content creators face the common roadblocks that create barriers to streaming success, including distracting background noise.

Noting just how essential high-quality audio is for streamers and content creators, Fnatic wanted their first new partnership to be with an organization that actively supports the industry, commits to providing the very best industry-leading audio, and understands streamers’ demands of excellence. With the new MV7 Podcast Kit serving as the ideal audio solution for streamers, podcasters and musicians, Shure was the absolute best match. By tapping into the expert knowledge and tools from both Shure and Fnatic, emerging streamers can be champions in no time.

Compatible with virtually any gaming setup, the MV7 is easy to integrate into existing technology. The mic offers both USB and professional XLR output for use with interfaces, mixers, and professional audio equipment – making it an excellent multi-purpose solution for gaming and streaming. Equipped with built-in-digital signal processing, mobile, and desktop app control, plus hardware control, the MV7 has been specifically engineered to give Content Creators the most functional, professional streaming microphone.

Launched in April 2020, Fnatic Network offers budding and full-time content creators the opportunity to elevate their streaming capabilities. In July 2021 Fnatic Network went through some restructuring of it’s creator tiers and a move to offer Fnatic Network members a range of diverse brand building workshops, monthly Q&A sessions with Fnatic staff and coaches, as well as inclusion in Fnatic and partner campaigns.

Soraya Sobh, Head of Creator Management, has heard first hand from Fnatic Network talent on the early career challenges they face and is looking forward to the support that a partnership with Shure will bring to Fnatic Network.

“We’re thrilled to not only launch our first official Fnatic Network brand campaign but even more excited to announce Shure as the partner to do it with. Fnatic Network is laser focused on developing and educating talent at every level and that aligns perfectly with the Shure MV7 which provides a fantastic mic for levelling up any gaming set up. The synergy between both Shure and Fnatic Network was seamless and indicative of the type of activation we want to offer our talent.“

The campaign will include Fnatic Network Gold Tier talent, PilotCeeBee and Phyzik. Between just the two of them they have nearly 100k reach.

“A very good microphone is one of the most important things as a Content Creator or if you want to become one! I am a Shure fan for a long time now and really appreciate being a

part of this awesome campaign and being able to try out the new MV7!”  PilotCeeBee, Fnatic Network member

“I am extremely proud and happy. It was an honor to compete in the grand final inside Philippe- Chatrier court. The tournament was an incredible experience and I will never ever forget it,” William Foster, 2022 Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas champion, said.

The Grand Final, which took place in a dedicated gaming area located at the top of the prestigious Philippe-Chatrier court, saw eight finalists who qualified from one of four qualifying events compete against each other in a best-of-one, round-robin competition. The finalists included representatives from five countries, including Great Britain, France, Columbia, Germany and Iran. Following the conclusion of the round-robin tournament, the four best players progressed to the semi-final stages of the competition, where they played a best-of-three match. Fozzy and Anteo then competed in the final, before being presented with the winner and runner-up trophies by Gilles Moretton, French Tennis Federation (FFT) President, and their prize money of €3500 and €1500 respectively.

“Congratulations to William Foster for winning the 2022 Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas! We were amazed to see how tough the competition was this year and we even saw a record breaking number of participants enter the event from all over the world. In 2022, we made huge steps to make our competition more accessible to everyone, which included guaranteeing at least two women had the chance to compete in the Grand Final for the very first time through our collaboration with Women in Games. As the only Grand Slam to organise an eTennis tournament, we are honoured to fulfil our mission to promote tennis and eTennis worldwide. We are also proud to share this ambition with our partners BNP Paribas and Renault, and look forward to developing the event further in the future,” Gilles Moretton, President of the French Tennis Federation, said.
