Today we can confirm that Markus ‘MakezCR’ Moilanen will be a free agent beginning 11th December 2017 as NYYRIKKI will close our Fifa division for the foreseeable future.
Markus first signed with NYYRIKKI on the back of his 2nd place finish at IS Cup on Fifa 17 and went on to secure a top 4 finish at eSM Finnish Championships earlier this year under the NYYRIKKI banner.
Matt Wright, NYYRIKKI Operations Director Statement:
“Despite an extremely enjoyable few months with Make under our brand, it is time to let him look for other opportunities as both parties felt that it was the right thing to do. Fifa has been an interesting venture for us however, with being such a new and developing organisation, we have decided to focus on the titles that we are most well known for going into 2018. We are open to the idea of expanding into Fifa once again when the time is right but for now we feel it is best to allow Markus the opportunity to look for a new home in an organisation that is more invested into Fifa as an esport. Should any Veikkausliiga team want to get involved in the Fifa scene in Finland, I would imagine Markus will be at the top of their list and the last thing we want to do is hold him back from those sorts of opportunities. I have had an absolute blast working with Markus throughout his contract and I wish him every success. We are both open to the possibility of working together in the future should the stars align!”
From everyone here at NYYRIKKI Esports, we would like to wish Markus the best of luck in his future.
