G2 Esports has announced that three of its esports rosters have agreed to stay with the organisation until at least 2022 after a mass contract renewal.
G2’s rosters in League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, and Rocket League have all committed to new contracts, ensuring some long-term stability (or at least some juicy transfer fees for players) over the next couple of years.
The biggest, but likely the most unsurprising, signing will be that of G2’s LoL roster, which was already the only team in the League of Legends European Championship to remain unchanged during the off-season. G2 has dominated in European LoL for the last two seasons and reached the final of the 2019 World Championships, only to be defeated by FunPlus Phoenix. In a statement from G2, it is confirmed that the core five members of the roster (Perkz, Caps, Jankos, Mikyx, and Wunder) have all re-signed, along with coaches Grabbz and Duffman. Substitute ADC P1noy was not mentioned, despite recently getting some game time on the main roster.
The Rainbow Six Siege roster, of which two current members are former Six Invitational champions, also extends its contracts to 2022.
The organisation’s Rocket League squad, which has recently been challenging NRG hard to be North America’s top team, also commits its future to G2.
Following the triple renewal, CEO Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez says: “We feel an incredible sense of pride each time partners, players, and fans decide to stick with us through the years. Our League of Legends, Rainbow 6, and Rocket League teams are sought after by organisations from North America, Europe, China, and SEA alike. Renewing their agreements with us underlines how great of a relationship we have with them.”
G2 continues to prove itself as a top tier esports organisation, and recently expanded into the blossoming competitive Valorant scene, picking up a win in its first tournament as an official roster.
