Liquid extended contract with Stewie2K for 2 years
Liquid has announced a contract extension with team captain Jake "Stewie2K" Yip. The new agreement of the American player is for the next two years.
The 22-year-old eSports athlete has been playing for Liquid since December 2018. During that time, the team's main achievement was winning its second Intel Grand Slam season for the championship at four consecutive tier-1 tournaments in the middle of last year.
Stewie2K has served as an in-game leader since August 2020, when longtime captain Nicholas "nitr0" Canella left the Liquid lineup. Since then, the team's highest results at major tournaments have been second-place runs at ESL One Cologne 2020 for North America and IEM Global Challenge 2020.
