KRU Esports has announced its entry in competitive CS2 with an Argentine lineup.
The Sergio Aguero owned organization which also has Lionel Messi as a partner was looking to enter CS2 since November 2023.
Earlier KRU Esports had reportedly made an attempt to sign the former Brazilian roster of Paqueta.

KRU Esports has officially entered Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) with an Argentine lineup that previously played together as a squad under the name PUBG Aim, participating in multiple open qualifiers in 2024.

The team owned and founded by popular Argentine footballer, Sergio Aguero, had onboarded one of the most famous sportspersons in the world, Lionel Messi, as a partner of KRU Esports in November 2023 with plans of entering CS2 in 2024.

Four months later, KRU Esports has successfully signed an Argentine roster to enter the CS2 competitive scene and further looks to create an academy team soon to fulfill all their goals.


KRU Esports Takes First Steps Into CS2 With Argentine Lineup

While bringing Lionel Messi in as a partner last year, Sergio Aguero had said that plans were being discussed to create a CS2 Academy where the best players from Argentina would play. KRU Esports would train them and provide all the necessary tools to grow and succeed.

KRU Esports might not have established an Academy yet but it has signed its main CS2 team which consists of players from Argentina, marking their presence in the scene while also supporting talent from their home country.


KRU Esports has signed members of a team that used to compete as a squad under the name PUBG Aim having participated in qualifiers of multiple CS2 tournaments like PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024 SA RMR Open Qualifier 2, IEM Chengdu 2024 South America Open Qualifier 1, and IEM Dallas 2024 South America Open Qualifier 1.

  • Ignacio "⁠nch⁠" Devita [Coach]


The organization had reportedly tried to enter the CS2 scene before by attempting to sign the former lineup of a Brazilian team called Paqueta in September 2023. Unfortunately, the deal fell through as the lineup in discussion opted to sign with Red Canids, an esports organization from Brazil.

With all that in the past and a new team under its wings, KRU Esports would love to replicate the success that it enjoyed competing in Valorant, swiftly becoming one of the best teams to emerge from Latin America.
