The roster includes three British players — Muhammad " Moe40 " Hariff, James " Mistic " Orfila, and Jake " Boaster " Howlett — as well as a British coach in Jacob " Mini " Harris, plus two players from the European mainland in Croatian Domagoj " doma " Fancev and Greek Konstantinos " tsack " Theodoropoulos.
They have established themselves as one of the best rosters in Europe and have long been considered the best unsigned team in the region. SUMN FC finished second in First Strike: Europe, Europe's most prestigious event thus far, and won a number of tournaments during the period between the end of the Ignition Series and the start of First Strike. They recently finished in the top four of Red Bull Home Ground.
Fnatic is signing a core that has remained together since August, with the only change being the early October addition of tsack to replace Denis " dinkzj " Tkachev.
The signing comes just before the start of the European stage of the Valorant Champions Tour. The qualifier for the region's first Challengers event begins tomorrow. All teams, including Fnatic, will have to play through the qualifier to make it to the main event.
