London-based global esports performance brand Fnatic has today revealed its latest partnership with L’Oréal Men Expert, one of the world’s leading beauty and personal care companies. As part of the deal, the brands will develop and deploy engaging and creative content, as well as co-branded product activations, through the lens of the shared #PrepToPlay concept. L’Oréal Men Expert will also feature as the sole partner on the back of each Fnatic team’s jersey.
The collaboration with L’Oréal Men Expert and the creation of #PrepToPlay takes Fnatic’s ambition to level-up player performance in-game, by preparing out of it, one step further. The beauty and personal care brand will be involved in teams’ pre-game social media content, with a further #PrepToPlay content series planned to build hype leading up to some of the biggest moments in the esports calendar. As well as this, L’Oréal Men Expert HYDRA ENERGETIC and CARBON PROTECT product ranges will be made available for all Fnatic players, coaching staff, and talent, to help underpin this off-game support.
To complement the co-branded content, L’Oréal Men Expert will also sponsor Fnatic’s resident League of Legends content creator Rhobalas’ popular online web series, “The Rhobalas Show”, which focuses on all things League of Legends and LEC, featuring in-depth guest interviews with players, organisations and much more.
Fnatic CEO, Sam Mathews said: “Our players know that to be the best in-game we have to prepare the best outside of it and it’s those daily self-care rituals that give us the confidence to play better. We can’t think of a better brand to partner with than L’Oréal Men Expert to demonstrate our commitment to support our players across all areas of their game.”
L’Oréal Men Expert Global Marketing Director, Christine Nguyen said: “As the gaming industry continues to boom, we’re very excited about L’Oréal Men Expert’s partnership with Fnatic. Tapping into this new world is an exciting way for the brand to democratise the best of skin and body care, and to introduce L’Oréal Men Expert to Gen Z and millennial gamers. This partnership will empower men to experience the strength that comes from prioritising self-care, instilling them with the confidence to look, feel, and play better. Because you’re all worth it!”
