One of the best players in the world Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut announced his contract extension with the French esports organization Vitality until the end of 2024 yesterday. The huge announcement was celebrated throughout Paris as multiple holograms of ZywOo illuminated the ‘City of Light’.
Vitality Extends Contract With ZywOo
The 20-year-old French AWPer who was also the ‘Player of the Year’ in 2019 has been in an incredible form throughout 2020. ZywOo is a big reason behind Vitality’s tremendous success and the great consistency that they have showcased in the second half of 2020.
Locking ZywOo down for the next four years is a huge move for both, the organization and the player. It goes on to show the amount of trust the two have in each other and that Vitality is comfortable to revolve the team around him in the years to come.
Paris Illuminated With ZywOo Holograms
Considering how important a player he has proved to be for Vitality such a grand celebration was definitely deserved by the young gun. The holograms advertised throughout the city showcased ZywOo along with the Vitality branding and on the corner was written ‘ZYWOO 2024’, informing everyone that the Frenchmen will be staying with the homegrown organization for the next four years!
Not only were these holograms advertised in random select parts of the city but also in places that are a major tourist attraction, this includes several popular monuments like The Pantheon, The Trocadero, Montmartre, The Arc de Triomphe, and more.
Esports is steadily growing as more people are starting to connect with it especially in 2020 with most of the year being spent in a lockdown. When it comes to CS:GO, the European countries are embracing the sport open-heartedly especially in Denmark where Astralis is now a household name.
It is great seeing Paris being lit up with holograms of one of the best players in the world as Vitality plan their next move. So far the French side has been really successful when it comes to the proper implementation of a six-man roster. It will be interesting to see how well they utilise and perform with this extended lineup in 2021.
