Orangutan Gaming partners with esports fantasy platform ‘FanClash’

Orangutan Gaming has announced their very first partnership with esports trailblazer FanClash, Asia’s largest esports fantasy platform.  

In the past nine months of its establishment, Orangutan Gaming has seen great growth with both their esports teams, one in FreeFire and the other in BattleGrounds Mobile India. They have seen exponential growth since their inception and have now signed their first partner. The growth FanClash has witnessed since the launch of the product in February 2021 has been phenomenal – having organised over 50,000 fantasy contests and distributed over Rs 50 lakhs in winnings.  

Esports is evolving at every stage and this partnership brings the next big evolution in the world of esports – offering spectacular engagement options for fans. Through this first of its kind partnership of a fantasy app platform with a professional esports team, fan engagement takes a giant leap from fans watching the pro athletes play the games to fans being able to win big by taking part in fantasy contests. 

Orangutan also recently signed their first female esports athlete, Swayambika ‘Sway’ Sachar which shows their drive to bring an evolution within and beyond their organisation by including, uplifting and supporting the communities they serve.  

Orangutan Gaming head of marketing Khushali Dodia said, “Esports has shown tremendous potential and has gained a massive following, both in India and on a global level. We are constantly striving to ensure that our fans are at the core of everything we do and our partnership with FanClash enables us to do just that. We are looking forward to this collaboration and working on a more immersive and engaging experience for our fans.” 

FanClash head of marketing Archana Sangaram said, “From fantasy leagues and tournaments to the latest happenings in the gaming world, FanClash is involved in every step of gamers’ esport fandom journey. We strive to revolutionise esports fans’ experience by providing thrilling, fair, and accessible gameplay. Our partnership with Orangutan is a step in this direction and we are looking forward to delight Orangutan’s fans.”
