Having already taken our first steps into VALORANT with two editions of the G2 European Brawl, and the recently announced G2 Esports VALORANT Invitational, we’re beyond excited to announce the next big step forward. We are proud to welcome Oscar ‘Mixwell’ Cañellas Colocho as the first member and captain of our VALORANT roster.
Mixwell, a former CS:GO pro and one of the winningest Spanish players of all time, will be joining G2 Esports as a VALORANT pro. Mixwell has established himself as a top contender in VALORANT having recently won the biggest event in VALORANT history, Twitch Rivals: Valorant Launch Showdown — Europe No. 1. Mixwell is also no stranger to G2 Esports, having joined the G2 CS:GO roster as a temporary player in 2018 and is now coming back with his sights set on being part of the best VALORANT team in the world.
In addition to announcing Mixwell’s return, we’re also very excited to announce that Red Bull will be our first official partner for the G2 VALORANT pro team. Red Bull helped us take The Big Step last year and will help our VALORANT team reach new heights!
Mixwell had this to say about joining G2:
“G2's history shows that they are competitive in every game they've been part of and their content is also top, most of my fans are also G2 fans so it makes even more sense for me. The goal is to be the best VALORANT team in the world and I want to be the best player in the game, have fun representing the fans around the world, and I am sure we can do it together.”
Here is what our CEO Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez had to say about the move:
“VALORANT really is an amazing game I enjoy both playing and watching. G2 will have a World Championship winning team and it all starts with Mixwell. Many top organizations fought hard for him and we are delighted he's put so much trust into letting us build a killer lineup alongside him. Now you mfers stop poaching him already."
We’ve seen huge success with our G2 EU Brawls and are excited continue this success with Riot's VALORANT IGNITION Series! We're looking forward to building out a new roster in one of the most exciting games out there today. Keep your eyes on this space for more VALORANT news coming soon and please help us in welcoming Mixwell to the team!
