In what the 21 year-old Swede has described as “a dream come true”, Jackinho will join the active roster of Fnatic, taking the place of Major-Winner Robin ‘Flusha’ Rönnquist.
Jack ‘Jackinho’ Mattsson is one of the hottest prospects coming from Sweden. Making a dent on the domestic scene in the AWP role, the youngster has yet to experience the perils of high tier Counter-Strike.
During the start of the 2021 season, Jesper ‘JW’ Wecksell is still going to be the sniper on Fnatic, with Jackinho being delegated to the common rifles.
It is hard to put into words what it means to me to represent Fnatic. Playing for Fnatic was always my dream and I remember back in 2015 when I was watching Fnatic vs NIP and thought for myself that this is where I want to be and this is what I want to do.Jackinho via Twitlonger
The addition comes as no surprise, as In-Game Leader Maikil ‘Golden’ Selim had already hinted towards the integration of new Swedish prospects into the ranks of the veteran squad in the past.
After Robin ‘Flusha’ Rönnquist announced on January 8th that he would be stepping away from Fnatic, it became clear that the Swedes would likely be on the hunt for a up-and-coming talent from the domestic scene.
Flusha’s fate is yet to be determined, as the 27 year-old veteran will join the ever increasing pool of transfer-list/free-agency players on European soil.

With big events such as cs_summit 7 yet to announce any teams, it is still unknown when this brand-new roster will debut.
Nevertheless, Fnatic has an assured presence at the IEM Katowice 2021 Play-In on February 16th, facing some of the best teams in the world, which will certainly be trial by fire for this new addition.
