Metizport signs a brand new CS team with freshly crowned world champions at the forefront; now they aim to put wind in the sails of the Metizport ship.
It's an exciting time for Metizport. The club, which has already made a significant mark in various e-sports contexts, is now strengthening its grip on Counter-Strike by introducing a new team. Many had already heard the rumors, but now it's official: Metizport is launching a new CS team to compete on both the Swedish and international stages. This demonstrates the club's seriousness and our growth ambitions within e-sports.
Metizport already has teams with high sporting ambitions within the biggest game titles. The club has teams in Valorant, a national commitment in CS known as "Metizport X", two SSBU players, and three content creators. With the addition of the new Swedish team, we have three freshly crowned world champions in Jackinho, adamb & abdi, two seasoned veterans who have competed internationally for many years in RuStY and hns, and one of the most sought-after talents Sweden has to offer in nilo! The new lineup: Hannes "hns" Johansson Jack "Jackinho" Mattson - Ingame leader Adam "adamb" Ångström Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson Linus "nilo" Bergman Ahmed "Abdi" Abdi - Coach
