Fnatic has announced its entrance in the Valorant competitive gaming by signing the SUMN FC roster which was an orgless squad. This is the first time Fnatic is entering in the new title since the announcement of PUBG Mobile team in 2019 where they signed players from India to represent them at the global events.
Fnatic VALORANT roster:
- Jake “Boaster” Howlett
- Domagoj “Doma” Fancev
- James “Mistic” Orfila
- Muhammad “Moe40” Hariff
- Kostas “tsack” Theodoropoulos
This team has shown some amazing performance in Valorant’s European scene, they are one of the best rosters from Europe. SUMN FC has reached grand finals five times and won one tournament. Previously, the team had given a tough competition to Team Liquid at VALORANT Redbull Home Ground. The fans have been waiting for this announcement from a long time as Fnatic has shown quite an interest in VALORANT at the start of the esports scene. Fnatic has also brought Europe’s first tournament with the support of Riot Games.
Chief Gaming Officer Patrik “cArn” Sättermon said “We’re so excited to finally join Valorant. It’s been the number one thing fans have been asking for since the game launched, and we’ve taken our time to identify a roster that fits our vision of competing for the top titles in every game we enter. With our record of success in FPS games such as Counter-Strike, we’re looking forward to writing this new chapter in Fnatic’s history, and building our legacy in a new title.”
Valorant Team Director, Colin Johnson said “ This group of players have more than proven their talent in recent months, holding their own against the European elite in every tournament they compete in, without the support of a salary or organisation. With the help of Fnatic and our High-Performance Unit, we want to push them to reach that next level and win every tournament they compete in.”
We would see the team first time in VALORANT Champions Tour Challengers Europe which is scheduled to start from today.
