NaToSaphiX appointed as coach of NIP's female roster

Danish esports athlete Niels Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen has signed a contract with NIP as a coach of the women's team. The Swedish club announced this via its social media accounts.

NaToSaphiX will try himself out in the role of a team skipper for the first time. He previously competed on the Counter-Strike pro scene for Sprout, HEROIC, Nordavind and Ambush as AWPer and IGL.

NIP Impact has been without a coach since late last year when it parted ways with Anton "ToH1o⁠" Georgiev. Since then, the women's team has also changed the in-game leader.

Under the guidance of Sillassen, the Ninjas will make their debut in the European division of ESL Impact League Season 5. Later today, at 19:00 CET, the team will face Pigeons, the former squad of Nigma Galaxy.

 NIP Impact are now:

 Jennica "⁠Jenkon⁠" Sjögren
 Kiara "Qiyarah" Janssen
 Naomi "Nayomy" Janssen
 Mia "aiM" Cooper
 Anna "ramziiN" Ramsing
