MiBR Returns to Counter-Strike With Former SK Gaming Roster
Made in Brazil announced its return to Counter-Strike Saturday with the former SK Gaming roster.
Following an earlier report, MiBR revealed that Gabriel "Fallen" Toledo, Fernando "Fer" Alvarengaa, Marcelo "coldzera" David, Ricardo "boltz" Prass and Jacky "Stewie2k" Yip as the new lineup at the Transamerica Expo Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Coldzera shared after the reveal that the new team will be heading to Spain to boot camp before competing at ESL One Cologne.
MiBR was created in 2003 in Rio de Janeiro, when entrepreneur Paulo Velloso decided to invest in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team of his son. After a number of successes for the Brazilian scene, the MiBR brand decided to forgo sponsoring teams in 2012.
Immortals brought the MiBR brand, which was confirmed by Velloso, and speculation began that it would eventually lead to the Immortals return to CS:GO. In the beginning of the year, it was reported that the SK Gaming roster would join Immortals.
