Revenant Esports announced as first Skyesports Masters team
Skyesports have announced that Revenant Esports will be joining their upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, the Skyesports Masters as the first franchised team of the tournament.
Revenant Esports becomes the first out of the eight franchised teams, scheduled to take part in the event and they will be having a seven-man roster, which will include five main players and two substitutes.
The tournament lets each team field two international players as well. Revenant Esports will also add two players from the café qualifiers as well, which is in line with Skyesports Masters' roster rules.
We at Revenant have always had a holistic approach in esports and believe diversification is a key. Skyesports has given us just that with the franchised Skyesports Masters. With CSGO, we will soon have eight rosters across multiple esports titles in India. Revenant Esports believes in recognizing and nurturing esports talent to make them stars and the Skyesports Masters, with the café qualifiers, give us an opportunity to do just that. It was a no-brainer for us to enter this promising league as a franchised team.”
Rohit Jagasia, Founder and CEO, Revenant Esports.
The Skyesports Masters is India’s first-ever franchised league with eight teams. The tournament will kick off with an online League Stage spanning multiple weeks with the top teams advancing to the LAN Playoffs to crown a champion.
I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Revenant Esports into the Skyesports Masters. As a partner in our league, Revenant will get the opportunity to compete against the best CSGO teams in the country for a huge prize pool of Rs. 2 Crores. Revenant is an org which believes in long term commitments and our goal of growing Counter-Strike from the grassroots level in the future is aligned with Rohit’s vision."
