We can’t wait to see all of the content that comes in, and ultimately welcome a new member to FaZe Clan," said FaZe Clan founding member FaZe Rain. "Everything we do is for the fans and this is no different; we're giving our entire community the opportunity to join the FaZe family. And the important thing to keep in mind is that we aren't just looking for the best gamer to join our team, we're looking for every kind of creator --- visual artists, music artists, producers, pranksters, entertainers, any and all people who want to showcase their talent in front of an audience. FaZe has always been more than just gaming and we will continue to evolve and break boundaries. The next member of FaZe could be you, show us what you got!!"

“There are 1 million reasons MoonPay is excited to be a part of FaZe1,” said MoonPay CEO Ivan Soto-Wright. “The main one is helping to grow the incredible FaZe Clan Team. Good luck to all the contestants. Get ready for the most exciting 15 days of your life!”

FaZe1 comes on the heels of FaZe Clan and MoonPay’s announcement at the end of last year naming MoonPay the official NFT and crypto partner of FaZe. MoonPay is the leading global crypto payments infrastructure provider giving millions of users quick access to the crypto economy by offering an easy and secure way to buy and sell cryptocurrencies and NFTs. The partnership is set to include a series of content and media, both integrating MoonPay into existing content across the FaZe Clan platform and building new original content together. FaZe1 is the latest activation of the partnership, which kicked off with the “FaZe Forever Powered by MoonPay” event at Art Basel last December.

FaZe1 follows the massive success of 2020’s #FaZe5 Challenge which saw over 211,000 applications from around the world. During the first 30 days of the challenge, original content had a combined exposure of over 35M views and a total of 83M by the end of the challenge. Previous FaZe5 winners include FaZe Dirty, FaZe Agony, FaZe Gwidt, FaZe Faxuty, FaZe Nio, FaZe Scope, FaZe Flea, FaZe K1nG and FaZe Virus. The competition is designed for aspiring FaZe members to gain exposure and has acted as a stepping stone in the past for current FaZe members including FaZe Adapt, FaZe Blaze, FaZe Replays and FaZe Kitty who participated in past FaZe5 competitions, did not win, but then became members at a later date.

*If under 18, or if recruit resides in a jurisdiction in which MoonPay does not operate, signing bonus will be provided as a cash equivalent, subject to the restrictions set forth in the Recruitment Terms and Conditions.
