Team Vitality’s Vision for India
CEO of Team Vitality, Nicolas Maurer shared his thoughts on the organization’s presence in India stating “Our aim in India was to start an esports team that would have its own unique identity while imbibing core Team Vitality values. We are very happy with the roster as they have the right skills, as well as potential to be no. 1 team, and eagerly look forward to making our mark in a brand-new category. While we will fully support them during every step of their progress, we’re sure tons of additional support for the team will come via our fans - from India and the world over.”
The new Indian Call of Duty Mobile team is Team Vitality’s first step towards its expansion beyond Europe. The CEO detailed how the organization was built around Call of Duty back in 2013 and the game continues to be a backbone for the organization. The organization will be launching a pan-India Talent Hunt to find new talent for more esports teams. Rewired.gg has invested over $40 million into Team Vitality in a bid to solidify its presence in esports.
