Fnatic enters Street Fighter 6 with Chris Wong

After four years of inactivity in the professional Street Fighter scene, esports organization Fnatic reintroduced itself to it thanks to the addition of Chris Wong. According to Fnatic, entering the Street Fighter 6 scene will help the organization expand its brand across the globe and bring in new audiences.

"We’re excited to work alongside Chris to develop and contribute to the Asia East SF6 scene and hope you’ll root for him across the globe, wherever you are," the announcement stated. "Street Fighter events tour all over the world, so it’s likely Chris won’t be too far away in the near future if you’d like to see him duke it out on stage live — and trust us, it’s impressive."

Chris Wong himself also responded to the announcement on social media, stating that he will do his best in upcoming tournaments.
