During the Esports World Cup, Kevin will bring a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the game, helping to guide his team with the same dedication and insight that marked his competitive career.

Over the summer, the team will participate in several high-level competitions with the goal of dominating upcoming international tournaments. For the Esports World Cup Libo “torontotokyo” Chang will be standing in for Prestivent due to the EWC qualification ranking system, forcing Team Vitality to temporarily recruit an additional player to ensure that the lineup was eligible to play. Prestivent, who humbly sacrificed his place in the EWC line-up will still be a huge part of the team over the summer, as he lends support from the outside.

Team Vitality’s strategic entry into the American esports scene marks another step in its global expansion plan, complementing its established foothold in Europe and Asia. With the recent addition of six teams worldwide, spanning Indonesia, South Korea and more, Team Vitality is poised to amplify its reach by venturing into the American market and strengthening its presence on Twitch.

SHARED GOALS, UNMATCHED POTENTIAL

This all-star line-up shares a common ambition: a burning desire to establish themselves as forces to be reckoned with in the TFT scene. Their objectives are clear: to consistently secure top 4 finishes in major TFT tournaments and captivate audiences.

Team Vitality’s TFT dream team is already dominating the international stage, where they recently won the Esports World Cup: America Closed Qualifiers, eliminating Team Liquid in the first round, and securing their spot to compete this summer at the Esports World Cup in Riyadh. The team is dedicated to cultivating an interactive and engaged community, fostering excitement among both French and international fans.

“Similar to our recent announcements, Team Vitality is continuing its international development by placing particular emphasis on the excellence that characterises our club,” explains Fabien “Neo” Devide, co-founder and President of Team Vitality. “Our expansion this year is not limited to establishing a solid foundation, but making our first step in connecting with our North American audience. By integrating key athletes and personalities, we are strengthening our presence with this significant section of our fanbase.”
