Sources: FNATIC in Discussions With Jackinho to Join Active Roster


Swedish Counter-Strike team FNATIC has its sights set on a new player in Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattson and are in discussions with him about joining the active roster, according to multiple sources. At this time, it is unclear who he would replace should he join the team, but FNATIC have been actively searching for a new player in recent weeks.

Jackinho has been playing semi-professionally within Sweden since 2016 but did not appear on any active rosters between 2017 and early 2019. Upon returning to play, he spent time with nerdRage, Visomvet, and Prima Esport where he just departed last week. He primarily plays as an AWPer and is still just 21 years old.

FNATIC hasn't made a roster move since very early on in the year when they re-added Maikil "Golden" Kunda Selim after he had been on loan for several months from Cloud9. Once he joined officially, the team won ESL Pro League Season 11 Europe. More recently, FNATIC finished in third place for Flashpoint Season 2 following a group stage exit for IEM Beijing Online Europe.

At this time, the longest tenured member on the team is Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson who re-joined FNATIC in late 2016 after a two month stint with GODSENT. Following him is Jesper "JW" Wecksell who also re-joined after spending time with GODSENT, but came back roughly four months after KRIMZ. Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin joined the team in late 2018, while Robin "flusha" Rönnquist re-joined late last year after being inactive for six months.
