Today NYYRIKKI Esports are pleased to announce our venture into Counter-Strike:Global Offensive with the unveiling of our new team captained by Markus ‘shaker‘ Pyysalo.
NYYRIKKI’s management team have a long history with CS:GO in Finland and it was only a matter of time before the organisation took the steps to get involved in Finland’s biggest title. CS:GO has the highest prize money in domestic tournaments across Finland as well as some of the most talented up and coming players in Europe.
The roster see’s some of Finland’s best renowned players teaming up with who we think are the most promising up and coming talents that have been scouted out as the stars of the future.
Our new roster will be competing in leagues such as ESEA Main, Finnish Esports League as well as making their offline debut next week in Pori at the Insomnia Pro Tournament.
“We are delighted to sign with NYYRIKKI Esports as their first ever Counter-Strike team going into 2018. NYYRIKKI is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting brands Finnish esports has seen. Myself and Matt have now built a team that contains not only a lot experience but the chance for some young talents to really show themselves off. Our first event will be Insomnia next weekend in Pori and we are hoping for a great start in NYYRIKKI colors.”
