Esports organizations, such as 100 Thieves, FaZe Clan and Guild Esports, are a growing trend as esports’ popularity increases.

These orgs often have multiple teams competing across different games (for example, Guild has a team for Fortnite, VALORANT, Rocket League and FIFA 21) as well as a team of content creators.

These content creators are often excellent gamers and engaging personalities, but are not pro athletes playing on an esports team. They exist to create content that excites the audience and convert fans to the gaming organization. 

Guild Esports, a London-based gaming organization, has signed Niki “Nihachu” to its roster of content creators. 

As part of Guild’s content team, Niki will produce original content across the organization’s channels, attend live events and work alongside Guild’s partners and wider community of creators and professional athletes. She joins other Guild content creators Thomas “TN25”, Gee Nelly, Marcus “SoMarcus” Black and Stevie White. 

“We have set out to lead the way when it comes to building best-in-class content creator teams across the world of esports and adding Niki to the guildgang is a big step for us in delivering on this mission,” said Danny Lopez, Guild director of brand and content. “We’ve set the bar high within our own content creation across the industry and don’t plan on slowing down. Adding more original content led by our creators – so watch this space for exciting updates from Niki and the gang.”

Niki is a 19 year-old influencer with an established audience of over 5.5 million followers across Twitch, YouTube, Tik Tok, Instagram and Twitter. The bulk of her fans come from Twitch, where she more than tripled her followers in six months, growing from 500,000 to 1.6 million. 

“I’m so excited to get started at Guild and work with Gee, Stevie and so many other brilliant creators, streamers and gamers,” said Niki. “Everyone in the industry has seen the amazing work Guild have been doing over the past year – and it’s such a great opportunity for me to contribute to this and create quality content that Guild fans will want to see.” 

St. Louis Sports

FOX2 Sports is your home for the latest information about the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Blues, Saint Louis University, the University of Missouri, and the University of Illinois.

Are the Cardinals making a big trade? Are the Blues ready for another Stanley Cup run? Is someone going to sign a major free-agent deal? Are the Tigers, Billikens and Illini bringing in the next big recruiting class? We cover all the big games that matter.

The MLS is coming to St. Louis in 2023 and we’ll be here for the start of STL SC too. The XFL thrived in its reboot season playing at the Dome at America’s Center, and if the BattleHawks return in 2022, we’ll be there to tackle it.

St. Louis is home to some of the best high school student-athletes who go on to succeed in the pros and beyond. Before Larry Hughes, Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum made a name for themselves as Division I NCAA basketball stars at SLU, Florida, and Duke, they played at CBC and Chaminade. Before Ezekiel Elliott, Sheldon Richardson and Jeremy Maclin became Ohio State Buckeyes and Missouri Tigers and NFL first-round draft picks, they went to John Burroughs, Gateway Tech and Kirkwood. All of them were featured in the FOX2 Prep Zone before they went off to the SEC, Big 12, Big Ten and beyond.

Members of our team, including Sports Director Martin Kilcoyne, Charlie Marlow, and Rich Gould have covered every significant moment in St. Louis sports since 1987, from the football Cardinals’ departure for Arizona to the arrival of the St. Louis Rams; from the Mark McGwire home run chase to the Cardinals’ World Series titles, to the St. Louis Rams and the Greatest Show on Turf era’s Super Bowl crown; from Brett Hull to Vladimir Tarasenko, we’ve covered the Blues all the way to the team’s first Stanley Cup.

Think of all the great characters in St. Louis area sports history. Jack Buck, Mike Shannon, Charlie Spoonhour, Norm Stewart, Whitey Herzog, Tony LaRussa, Stan Musial, Dick Vermiel, Lou Brock, Albert Pujols, Kurt Warner, Ozzie Smith, Hull, Pat Maroon, Keith Tkachuk, Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, David Freese. All of them talk to us.
