The full former roster of SK Gaming have officially completed their move to Immortals' owned brand Made in Brazil (MiBR), with the team's first two sponsors confirmed.

The move has been anticipated for months, with fans waiting expectantly for the official announcement amid growing speculation of discontent between SK and their now former players.

The players had even chosen not to wear their official SK jersey's during recent tournaments, signalling that the move was imminent.

On June 7th, the reveal date was provided, set for June 23rd when the legendary MiBR brand would make its return to esports, after US organization Immortals purchased the rights.

The team is a full transfer of the former SK players and coach, Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia, with all players hailing from Brazil with the exception of former Cloud 9 star Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip.

MiBR is a nostalgic name to many, especially Brazilian CS:GO fans, as the organization represented teams from 2003 until 2012.

Immortals CEO Noah Whinston, who is also the CEO of Overwatch League team Los Angeles Valiant, purchased the MiBR brand earlier in 2018.

The full roster is  Gabriel "Fallen" Toledo, Marcelo "coldzera" David, Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, Marcelo "coldzera" David, Ricardo "boltz" Prass and Stewie2K.

In addition to the team announcement, two major new sponsors have also been announced, with dating app Tinder and bookmakers Betway both partnering up with the MiBR brand.

These brands join the companies already sponsoring Immortals: K-Swiss, Razor and and Mountain Dew.

Betway has already shown interest in CS:GO esports specifically, partnered with Swedish organization Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP).

Apparently, the Tinder sponsorship will connect Counter-Strike fans together, although it is unclear exactly how this will operate.
