My sons basketball team has joined OMNI5 ESports as the organization’s first European Team Fortress 2 team. OMNI5 ESports currently houses a North American team competing in ESEA’s Intermediate division.
OMNI5 ESports’ TF2 manager, Pops, told us the organization’s thoughts on the new team.
We are absolutely ecstatic to be working with Demos and the boys from My Sons Basketball Team. I think they’ll bring a lot of character to the OMNI5 family and deliver high level gameplay that will make us proud. So far they’ve been an absolute pleasure to work with and I’m very excited to watch them continue to improve and progress wearing the o5 colors.
My sons basketball team (formerly Rakuzan and underdogs) qualified for Premiership after winning the ETF2L Season 28 High Division. For much of the team, Season 29 acts as their Premiership debut, with many of the players having played for multiple seasons of High prior. After Week 1, the team swapped p-rez and Ace for Scruff and Raptor, the latter notably having Premiership experience, including winning ETF2L Season 27 Premiership with Arctic Foxes.
We reached out to the team captain, Demos, who was able to comment about the team’s new organization.
We are as surprised as everybody else. The plan was for the team to get sponsored next season, but with the help of Pops we managed to start our collaboration earlier. This is our first real sponsor so personally I’m really happy and I think it's beneficial for the future of this team.
So far in the Regular Season, under their numerous monikers, My sons basketball team have accumulated fifteen points, currently putting them in fifth in the ETF2L Premiership standings.
With the new signing, OMNI5 ESports EU’s roster is now:
- Scout: Swi
- Scout: Scruff
- Roamer: Gotti
- Pocket: Raf
- Demoman: Demos
- Medic: Raptor
