Vodafone Giants, the Spanish esports organization owned by the British telecommunications company Vodafone, just announced their new Valorant roster. Commonly referred to just as “Giants”, the organization has teams in CSGO, League of Legends, Fortnite, FIFA, and Rainbow Six.
First on the roster is Lucas “HITBOX” Sabariegos. Prior to Valorant, HITBOX had a short run with the Spanish CSGO organization Movistar Riders back in 2017. He also co-founded the Spanish Valorant news website and talk show “Universo Valorant” alongside his teammate Starwraith.
Next up is Rodolfo “StarWraith” Barrientos. On top of being HITBOX’s business partner, the two also played together in CSGO on an orgless team called ColdMind all the way back in 2014. He also has some experience under an orgless Apex Legends team called SUCCUBUS.
The third player on the roster is Adolfo “Fit1nho” Gallego. Adding to the FPS experience of his teammates, Fit1nho also played CSGO but under the Wizards Esports Club banner. In Valorant, he won a few Beta tournaments under the team name Superstars alongside his teammates donQ and Yurii. He also won the G2 Esports Invitational on Team Mixwell.
Francesc “donQ” Savall is fourth with the most professional CSGO experience of the roster. He played under big names in Spanish CSGO such as k1ck eSports, Movistar Riders, and KPI Gaming. As mentioned before, he won a few tournaments in the Valorant Beta alongside Fit1nho and Yurii on the Superstars team.
Last but not least is Salvador “Yurii” Gasco. He also played CSGO for Wizards Esports Club alongside Fit1nho and was a part of Superstars with donQ and Fit1nho.
In all, the quintet has a lot of FPS experience, and given their chemistry together, will likely show some good results for Vodafone Giants. The organization believes the roster will lay the groundwork for a future in the esport, as Giants’ Head of Operators David Alonso said in the team’s official press announcement.
“We want to lay the foundations for our future in this video game and there is no better way than to unite the young and veteran talent of Spain. The security offered by entering a Riot game is synonymous with good work and a future ”.
