FC Amkal officially announces Counter-Strike roster
Media football club Amkal has confirmed the rumors about its debut in esports with the signing of a Counter-Strike roster. As expected, the team's core was made up of a former 1WIN trio.
The roster with Aleksei "NickelBack" Trofimov, Igor "Forester" Bezotecheskiy and Aleksandr "TRAVIS" Timkiv included Vladislav "Krad" Kravchenko and Kaisar "ICY" Faiznurov, who previously represented FORZE and AVANGAR, respectively.
Amkal's founder, German "El Classico" Popkov, stated that the team's main goal is to qualify for the Major and receive stickers.
I want to qualify for the Major, show good results and get stickers. In the sphere of media football, we once managed to get the Amkal to appear in FIFA mode. We have a huge number of fans who play CS. It will be cool if each of them can put our sticker on their weapon. It's a thrill.
Note that AMKAL will receive a spot in the closed qualifier for the Europe RMR. The slot was assigned to 1WIN players.
AMKAL are now:
Aleksei "NickelBack" Trofimov
Igor "Forester" Bezotecheskiy
Aleksandr "TRAVIS" Timkiv
Vladislav "Krad" Kravchenko
Kaisar "ICY" Faiznurov
