The roster includes female players ‘Showliana,’ ‘Bizinha,’ ‘Pan,’ ‘GaBi,’ and ‘cAyy,’ and the team will be coached by ‘Walck.’

This news was announced on September 6 via a post on the OpTic Gaming Twitter page, which also included an introductory video.

The players are all understandably excited about representing such an established organization such as OpTic.

According to Showliana, the team will compete for the first time under OpTic at the ‘GameXPoficial’ competition on September 7.

This new team is the latest in the ‘OpTic Global’ initiative, which is an effort on the part of OpTic to build teams overseas and establish itself as an international esports brand.

OpTic Brazil joins the Indian based OpTic India as the second international CS:GO team competing under OpTic, who also have a main team based in North America.

Real Madrid and Brazil football star Casemiro has announced the launch of his own esports team, CaseEsports.

The defensive midfielder’s team will initially compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, debuting in the qualifier for DreamHack Masters Winter on November 3.

The decision to start a team, according to the org’s official website, was birthed from Casemiro’s “enthusiasm, desire to enjoy and passion for this game” – speaking specifically of Counter-Strike.

The organisation will provide a team of sports professionals to enhance the performance of their players. They plan to “lead the European esports scene” through “effort, perseverance and teamwork.”

CaseEsports will be hoping for land1n to make an instant impact.

The all-Brazilian roster that has been assembled includes former paiN Gaming and Tempo Storm players Denis “⁠dzt⁠” Fischer and Paulo “⁠land1n⁠” Felipe, former FURIA Academy duo Yan “⁠yepz⁠” Pedretti and Vinicius “⁠n1ssim⁠” Pereira, and former Imperial player Felipe “⁠delboNi⁠” Delboni.

CaseEsports has already secured the support of multiple sponsors, including peripherals brand HyperX, glasses retailer Hawkers, gaming chair brand Drift, and “fashion soccer” line BŮH.

“This team was created out of a hobby of mine that I really enjoy,” said Casemiro, according to HLTV. “I wanted to take it to a professional level, and just like in my career, I want them to be the best. I know that creating a new team and winning titles will take time and require a lot of work, but I hope that the players and the fans will really enjoy this project.”

Athletes starting their own esports teams is not a new trend by any means.

In the last few months alone, David Beckham launched Guild Esports, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero founded KRU Esports, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started Team Diverge.
