It was back in October of last year when FaZe Clan announced that it would become a publicly traded company. The esports and gaming content organization has now completed its $724 million SPAC merger with B. Riley Principal 150 Merger Corp. and has now begun trading under the stock ticker FAZE on the NASDAQ.

When markets opened this morning, FaZe Clan (FAZE) stock began trading on the NASDAQ, marking a huge first for not only the organization, but gaming and esports as a whole. FaZe Clan CEO Lee Trink provided a statement as the company’s stock hit the market.
