A River Plate CS:GO Team might have not been exactly what you expected to see, but we are in 2020, after all. The Argentinian Sports Club (primarily known for their team in Argentina’s Primera Division) now have a professional CS:GO team.
It’s not something I expected to see, necessarily, but then again I wasn’t even aware River Plate had an esports division. They set it up in 2016, primarily working with football simulators in their early years. River Plate then announced a League of Legends team late last year; they ended up competing in LVP’s Liga Master Flow. You can find out all about them on their Wikipedia page here. Now, in an effort to expand their esports successes… River Plate has signed a team for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
River Plate CS:GO Team Headed By Ezequiel “KUN” Palmero
Allegedly, negotiations had been going on for a little while but didn’t really come to anything until recently. This coincided with Eziquel “KUN” Palmero being benched in Coscu Army… Weird, huh?
Anyway, River Plate then decided to sign KUN’s previous teammates Ariel “arieldidi” Ramirez and Mariano “MRN1” Santa Maria. These two were free agents at the time and were joined by free agent Thomas “christopher” Navales and former Malvinas player Guido “guidimon” Romano.
The team operates with Hugo “rew4z” as coach, who has experience coaching the Miami Flamingos. River Plate aims to compete in a number of Latin American tournaments. These include the Aorus League, FiRe League, La Liga Pro Trust, and the Logitech G Challenge 2020.
Do you think River Plate will be able to make a mark on the CS:GO scene? I guess only time will tell…
