Team Vitality secure €50m investment to create more ‘superteams’, announce new 2022 CSGO roster: “We have what it takes to be the best CSGO team in the world”

Team Vitality have secured €50m in funding from Rewired.gg spread over the next three years to “create European super teams capable of winning the most coveted trophies in esports”.

The French-based esports organisation have also today announced their 2022 CSGO roster, with the signing of Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, Emil “magisk” Reif, and Danny “zonic” Sørensen.

The decorated trio join Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, Dan “apEX” Madesclaire, and Kévin “misutaaa” Rabier to complete what they’re calling “one of the strongest line-ups in CSGO history”.

The news also follows the reveal of Team Vitality’s League of Legends 2022 roster, featuring world champion finalist Luka “Perkz” Perković and back-to-back European Champion Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság.

Team Vitality’s CSGO and League of Legends rosters represent a new era for the organisation as they “aim to dominate European esports, bolstered by increased investment, “unrivalled facilities and performance staff, and a strong leadership team from the sport and lifestyle industries”.

“With a new laser focus on performance and securing the best international talent in esports, it is Team Vitality’s goal to conquer the biggest stages of them allby being the most serious contender at Worlds and Major on the three next years,” Vitality added in a press release.

These gigantic rosters are represented in the “Watch us follow us” Team Vitality brand video in which CSGO and League of Legends athletes become titans.

“This scale of talent investment has never been seen in esports before and I am honoured to be leading the charge with these rosters which have the potential to make history in Europe and beyond,” said, Fabien “Neo” Devide, co-founder and esports director at Team Vitality.

“Since the beginning of our entrance into CSGO, we have been working with intensity to get to the top and nurture some of the best talent France has to offer. It’s now time to think internationally and create a new CSGO culture of European talent with legacy athletes. As proven winners, dupreeh, magisk and zonic have what it takes to move us from not just being a strong contender, but the best CSGO team in the world.”

Vitality said CSGO has always been central to the org’s competitive ambitions, “with a long history of winning trophies and nurturing some of the biggest players in the space”.

Team Vitality is home to back-to-back HLTV Player of The Year and Forbes 30 under 30 honoree ZywOo. At 21 years old, ZywOo broke records by becoming the holder for the most MVP awards earned by a player during their first competitive year, securing five.
