Nivera joined Vitality as sixth player
Vitality have announced the transfer of player Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom from Heretics. This confirms the information of insider Guillaume "neL" Canelo, who was the first to announce the negotiations between the organizations and the possible expansion of Vitality line-up to six players.
The 19-year-old eSports athlete has spent past seven months in Heretics. During this time he participated at the RMR tournament ESL One Road to Rio and ESL One Cologne 2020.
Vitality also considered Ali "hAdji" Heinuss, Brian "Maka" Kanda and Nicolas "Keoz" Dgus as the sixth player, according to neL . All of them had equal chances to join the team, but the more advantageous transfer conditions had been the decisive factor.
As the application time for the DreamHack Open Fall 2020 has already expired, Benrlitom's debut for the new team can only take place at the end of October, when Vitality will play at BLAST Premier Fall Series 2020.
