In an exclusive interview with Spiel Times, Victor Bengtsson, a member of  Fnatic’s pro-gaming management team, shared the organisation's plans for India and Team XSpark

XSpark is the leading Indian PUBGM team that the organisation recently signed. Its roster consists of Mohammed "Owais" Lakhani, Harpreet "Ronak" Singh, Paritosh Sharma, Tanmay "Sc0utOP" Singh, and Ujwal "Inyodream" Chaudhari.

It turns out that Fnatic has had its eye on the region for some time now. Although their acquisition took many by surprise, it was the result of careful planning and a study of the market. The organisation sought out how it could penetrate the market with the biggest splash, and it has certainly achieved that now. 

According to Bengtsson, Fnatic will focus on the esports and content side of things for now. However, it intends to set up a gaming facility, staffing and HQ support for their new roster soon. They also hope the new team will inspire other kids in the region to dream big and pursue careers of their own in esports. 

Financial details regarding the signing were not shared, but it Bengtsson confirmed that players receive a monthly salary and will also take home their tournament earnings. This new development will boost esports in India and the buzz from their signing is more than enough to attract more organisations into the market. 

The team will not only compete in local events but also international ones, as Fnatic is a global brand and XSpark is now a part of that legacy. 

It’s been a long term dream and goal to enter India. We’ve been exploring the market as well as meeting with players, organisations and game developers to understand how the market is moving and where the opportunities lie,” said Fnatic’s Chief Gaming Officer, Patrik Sattermon in another interview. 

Fnatic plans to move into other mobile games as the organisation considers them the future of esports. However, the focus right now is on PUBGM due to its growth potential and current popularity in India.
