India-based esports IP and tournament organizer Skyesports has announced that Revenant Esports’ newly-signed Counter-Strike 2 esports roster from Europe will be traveling to India for the Skyesports Championship 2024. 

Revenant Esports’ Counter-Strike 2 esports roster is headlined by Nathan “NBK” Schmitt, a two-time Major winner, and one of the most notable names in the scene. Accompanying the prodigy are Kamil “reiko” Cegielko, Nabil “Nivera” Benrlitom, Laurențiu “lauNX” Țârlea, and Adelin “adeX” Nica.  

The European team has received a direct invite to the Skyesports Championship 2024. They will be traveling to India to be one of eight teams competing in the tournament, which features the likes of Aurora Gaming, BetBoom Team, Eternal Fire, Furia, and The MongolZ. 

Commenting on the latest invited team to the Skyesports Championship, Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO, of Skyesports, said, “We are thrilled to welcome the talented roster of Revenant Esports to the Skyesports Championship. It fills us with immense pleasure to see local esports organizations realizing the potential of Counter-Strike 2 esports, fueled by our $1 million 2024 roadmap and numerous on-ground events, and picking up international rosters. Bringing the best esports athletes in the world to compete in India has been a dream for us. We look forward to hosting the Skyesports Championship LAN this July.”

Skyesports will also be hosting separate qualifiers in Europe and India to determine the last two teams in the Skyesports Championship.
