The Swedish esports organization, NIP, has announced a new women's CS:GO roster from Europe with an aim to compete in the upcoming ESL Impact Season 2, scheduled to take place from 8th September to 23rd October.

"We've been working on taking clear steps to empower under-represented groups in esports for a while now and today we’re proud to finally reveal our ESL Impact lineup! We brought together Swedish, Norwegian, and French ninjas to forge a deadly team that is here to click heads, win trophies, and make their mark on competitive CS:GO," read a statement from NIP as part of its official announcement.

The first two tournaments under the ESL Impact League - ESL Impact Valencia 2022 and ESL Impact League Season 1 have been dominated by Nigma Galaxy Female who compete through the European Division.

This could be a great challenge for the NIP roster as only two slots are available for European teams at the ESL Impact League Season 2 - Main Tournament which will be taking place from 25th to 27th November at Jönköping, Sweden.
