Interesting news of the team:
Sponsored by the U.S. Air Force
In early June 2014, a game pointed out that with its excellent performance, the C9 team was supposed to usher in a super strong sponsor, the US air force. Although it is only the reserve team of the air force, this sponsorship is probably the biggest sponsor of the e-sports industry so far. Therefore, we have to say how successful the operation of C9 club is. The reason why the U.S. Air Force Reserve sponsored C9 this time is very interesting. We are looking forward to recruiting more young Air Force talents through the network.
TGA Club of the year
In 2016, the game award named cloud9 "E-sports Club of the year". In 2017, C9 won TGA's "best E-sports Club of the year" again, and won the award for two consecutive years.

Cloud9, as an old strong team in the North American theater, has brought us a lot of wonderful games.
