Fnatic’s chief gaming officer Patrik “cArn” Sättermon said in a statement:
“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 also weighed in:
“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 organization. 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.”
Fnatic will compete for the first time in the Valorant Champions Tour Challengers (EU), which starts later this week, Feb. 4.
