Today we can announce that we have signed 16-year-old, Elias ‘Jamppi’ Olkkonen on a short-term trial contract until the end of May.
In this timeframe NYYRIKKI will be using a new method of player-trials, where our CS:GO team will operate a 6-man roster with players being rotated throughout practice sessions and official matches in an attempt to find an ideal fit for our line-up in the build up to the busy summer schedule. This trial method gives all players equal opportunities in a move welcomed by the team and management.
Statement from NYYRIKKI COO & CSGO Manager Matt Wright:
“For now, we welcome young Jamppi to the NYYRIKKI CS:GO roster in an unorthodox player-trial approach. Although we are pleased with the progress that our CS:GO line up have made over the past season, NYYRIKKI have always been believers in innovation when it comes to our rosters and giving opportunities to promising talents to aid their development. We believe that Jamppi has proven that he has what it takes to compete at a higher level than he is currently competing at, therefore we have decided to test whether he can bring something new and exciting to our team.”
