Whoops! It's not every day that a huge organization manages to get one of its own social profiles deleted so we all have to point and laugh. It must feel bad to be the soul who altered the birthday setting on the FNATIC account, which saw the platform's automated systems remove the account for misbelieving it to be owned by a minor.

What may have happened was altering the Twitter birthday to the organization's founding date, which then made Twitter believe the account was created by the owner back when they were a minor. This — of course — wasn't the case, but the system can't seemingly differentiate between individual and business accounts, which seems like an odd oversight.
Still, it's a bit of fun, and esports organizations (FNATIC included) all saw the humorous side.
Celtic FC knocked out of the CWL
One of the two most dominant football (that's soccer for you Americans) clubs in Scotland is further developing its esports presence. We've seen football clubs create specific divisions to manage teams like FC Schalke 04 and now Celtic FC is looking to get in on the action with an all-UK team for the CWL Championship.
The club's team representing Celtic at the CWL Championship performed admirably but was knocked out by RBL. You can expect to see many more traditional sports organizations transition to esports with new divisions to compete in titles like FIFA, Call of Duty, League of Legends, and more.
Not only is this good news for any gamer who happens to be a sports fan, but also sports fans who may now be exposed to the esports scene.
