Fnatic has announced the new lineup for its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Academy team. The roster will be made up of the winners of Season 2 of the GAMERZ esports reality series.
The new Fnatic Academy lineup will be Johan "Meddo" Lundborg, Hubert "CaNNiE" Ludwig, Alexander "AlekS" Andersson, Adam "Ec1s" Eccles, and Mate "Matafe" Fekonja.
Fnatic were in the process of transferring its last academy roster in May. Maikil "Golden" Selim was moved to the main Fnatic roster after Olof "Olofmeister" Kajbjer Gustafsson left the team for FaZe Clan.
The result of GAMERZ Season 2 is a complete reversal of the situation in Season 1. The winners of GAMERZ in Season 1 did not receive professional contracts for a team. They were told they would receive $12,200, the equivalent of six months salary, which was then reduced to three months.
The Fnatic main roster has been playing extremely well this year, winning the WESG World Finals over Space Soldiers, and IEM Katowice over FaZe Clan. The new Fnatic Academy roster has much to learn from its big brother.
