About 100 Thieves

100 Thieves is a new gaming lifestyle company and esports organization built at the intersection of competitive gaming, entertainment, and apparel.  100 Thieves was founded in 2016 by Matt "Nadeshot" Haag, the former OpTic Gaming Call of Duty captain, X Games gold medalist, and 2014 Esports Athlete of the Year.  After retiring from competitive play, Matt went on to build some of the most popular gaming channels on Twitch and YouTube. He founded 100 Thieves as a creative outlet for his passions in competitive gaming, storytelling, and streetwear.  In 2017, the company’s growth accelerated with an investment from Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, in conjunction with receiving a franchise in the North American League of Legends Championship Series. Most recently, 100 Thieves finished in 2nd place in its first ever split in the NALCS, sold out its first apparel drop in 11 minutes, signed major sponsors like Rocket Mortgage and Razer, and released the acclaimed esports docuseries The Heist.  Moving forward, our goals are to win championships, tell the most compelling stories in competitive gaming, and create the world’s first gaming lifestyle brand.
