Media: FURIA bought out junior
The Brazilian organization FURIA has acquired Triumph sniper Patin "junior" Johnson. It was reported by the portal DRAFT5, citing its own sources.
According to published information, the transfer price of 20-year-old American was about $ 55,000. At this time, FURIA has not decided who will make room for the team's rookie, despite the fact that earlier insiders reported finding a replacement for Enrique "HEN1" Teles.
junior made his name under the Triumph umbrella, which he has represented since April 2020. With him, the North American club has won several tier-2 competitions and has also participated in regional tournaments DreamHack Open Summer 2020 (7th-8th place), ESL One Cologne 2020 (7th-8th place), ESL Pro League Season 12 (8th place) and IEM Beijing 2020 (2nd place).
FURIA will play its first official matches after the winter break at the BLAST Premier Global Final 2020 to be held January 19-24. Also in the next two months, the Brazilian team is scheduled to play at the Funspark ULTI 2020 and IEM Katowice 2021.
