Rain featured on the front page of Aftenposten

FaZe Clan’s rain has been featured on the front page of Aftenposten, the largest printed newspaper in Norway.

The article is available also online - in Norwegian - on Aftenposten website, but without a paid subscription you can access only the preview. A rough translation of the title and headline:

Håvard Nygaard (23) used to work as a cashier at Kiwi (store). Now he earns millions as a world’s top gamer.

Computer games are no longer to be exclusively played by kids and teenagers. Esports is one of the world’s fastest growing sports phenomenon. One of the superstars is Norwegian.

FaZe Clan is now regarded as one of the best CS:GO teams in the world, and rain’s performance contributed to this achievement. Recently, they won two trophies and a total of $625,000 at ESL One New York 2017 and ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017.


More and more esports players and talents have been acknowledged also by traditional media. For example, in September we found a detailed article on Sheever’s career in one of the biggest newspapers in the Netherlands.
