It’s no secret that fans have been begging for a Fnatic Valorant roster, and Chief Gaming Officer Patrick ‘cArn’ Sättermon explains why it’s taken so long.

“We’re so excited to finally join Valorant. It’s been the number one thing fans have been asking for since the game launched, and we’ve taken our time to identify a roster that fits our vision of competing for the top titles in every game we enter.”
With regards to the roster, Valorant Team Director Colin Johnson wrote that “this group of players have more than proven their talent in recent months, holding their own against the European elite in every tournament they compete in, without the support of a salary or organisation.”
“With the help of Fnatic and our High Performance Unit, we want to push them to reach that next level and win every tournament they compete in.”

What’s next for Fnatic?

The org has confirmed that SUMN FC will be playing under the Fnatic banner throughout the Valorant Champions Tour, which kicks off on February 4.
