Rumors: Kjaerbye will join FaZe
Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye from Denmark is close to joining FaZe. Sources of cybersport.pl report that the team will debut in the new line-up already on ESL One Cologne 2020.
In mid-May, Kjaerbye retired due to health problems, and on July 10 he finally left the North to become a free agent. In FaZe he will take the place of Lithuanian Aurimas "Bymas" Pipiras, who played as a stand in.
Earlier FaZe line-up excluded Olofmeister. The 28-year-old Swede referred to fatigue, health problems and the need to think about his future. Insider Jarek "DeKay" Lewis reported that he will not return to the rosters of the European team.
The ESL One Cologne 2020 tournament, which may be the debut for Kjaerbye in FaZe, will take place online from 18th to 30th August online. In the European region, 16 teams will play for $325,000.
