As first reported by Dexerto's own DeKay on September 25, the now-former NRG lineup will represent Evil Geniuses at ESL One New York, starting September 26.

EG confirmed the acquisition on Twitter, thanking NRG for making it happen in time for New York.

EG will face off against a new look FaZe Clan in their first-round match-up, who now have Brazilian star coldzera in their ranks.

Considering FaZe are a new lineup, it could be an opening for EG to get an early win under their belts in their first-ever CS:GO match as an organization.
