NBA star Ben Simmons invests in FaZe Clan

Guild Esports has David Beckham and FaZe Clan has Ben Simmons. The latter has decided to take up a new challenge, far from the NBA. The Australian double All-Star won't be on the front line, but will play the role of investor and brand ambassador. Considering his stature and reputation, he's a great recruit.

Ben Simmons will take the pseudonym FaZe Simmo within the clan. He will help to promote the gaming and esports produced by the squad. He will be able to count on his celebrity and his large fanbase to make publicity, he who has nearly a million subscribers on Twitter.

The player explained that video games represented a real passion for him and that getting personally involved in an organization was a logical next step. Earlier in the year, he had been featured on Twitch when he streamed Call of Duty: Warzone.

With most sports having suspended their season due to the global pandemic, many of them tried the streaming adventure. While many returned without making any noise to their sporting life, Ben Simmons has decided to make a long-term commitment to the gaming and esports industry.
