On the 101st Finnish Independence day, NYYRIKKI Esports is delighted to reveal our second Overwatch roster made up of 8 full-Finnish players.
This new Overwatch roster has been built as the sister team alongside our current Overwatch roster which we recently decided to take in a Finnish and EU hybrid direction. From today our current roster will be rebranded as NYYRIKKI FROST & our new full Finnish roster will be branded as NYYRIKKI ICE.
