FunPlus Phoenix sets foot on Valorant competitive scene

The well respected organization has picked up the following players and coach:

  • Pontus “Zyppan” Eek
  • Tobias “shadow” Flodström
  • Kirill “ANGE1” Karasiow
  • Andrey “Shao” Kiprsky
  • Johan “Meddo” Renbjörk Lundborg
  • Erik “d00mbr0s” Sandgren (coach)

Zyppan, shadow, Meddo and d00mbr0s have relatively recently departed from their former FABRIKEN team. The Swedish team has just found replacements for the departed players.

Shao has his roots in another Valorant squad, PartyParrots. The young Russian has his fair share of achievements under the PartyParrots banner, as his team found success at Epulze Valorant Prodigies, as well as Wave Esports Invitational Cup -Season 1. Also, the fifth and final player of this roster is ANGE1. An incredibly respected and well known player from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with heaps of experience. Much like Shao, ANGE1 also comes from the impressive PartyParrots roster. His experience will surely translate well going into this FunPlus Phoenix team.

You can follow FunPlus Phoenix’ first match over at Allied Esports Odyssey tournament stream.
