WELCOME TO ALLIANCE – [A] VALORANT CAPTAIN
Gothenburg, Sweden – January 28 2021 – Following the initial announcement of VALORANT, Alliance instantly set the goal of finding a talented and hungry roster fit for the powerhouse organisation. In late 2020, Alliance announced that esports veteran James Banks would lead its VALORANT division and search for a team worthy of representing and sporting the colours of the legendary Swedish organisation. Today, Alliance is excited to announce its first VALORANT player – and it’s none other than its in-game leader in Enzo “Fearoth” Mestari.
Fearoth isn’t exactly new to the FPS scene, boasting experience from high-level CS:GO and as a day-one VALORANT professional, he’s sure to bring plenty to the table. His name gives it away – He’s a player to fear, with multiple podium finishes from VALORANT already.
“He’s had a great career so far,” says team manager James Banks. “He is my first building block to make this magic happen.”
“For me, the first goal is to make sure that the Alliance fans can be proud of the team,” says Alliance’s VALORANT captain Enzo “Fearoth” Mestari. “And of course, during this year, we want to participate in all the official Riot tournaments, we want to make progress during the year, we want to make surprises and we want to win trophies.”
Alliance is ecstatic about sharing its VALORANT news with everyone. Fearoth is the perfect player to build a team around, and the team can’t wait to share the rest of the roster.
