About Team Vitality
Team Vitality is one of the top esports organizations in the world, originating from France. It was founded in August 2013 by Fabien Devide and Nicolas Maurer. They have a presence in games like CS: GO, F1, FIFA, PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Rainbow Six Seige, Rocket League, and Street Fighter 5.
Although Vitality was eyeing the Indian market since 2019, they entered the scene in October 2020. The company started by partnering with four gaming content creators in the country:
- Nischay Malhan - Triggered and Live Insaan
- Rachit Yadav - Rachitroo
- Nitin Chougale - Classified YT
- Saloni Kandalgaonkar - Mili kya Mili
A few months back, Amit Jain, CEO of Rewired.GG (an esports venture fund that had invested 14 million euros in 2019 in Team Vitality), in an interview with Sportskeeda, spoke in length about Vitality's plans in the country. He also said that they plan to start with at least one competitive roster in 2021 in India.
The announced COD Mobile lineup arguably looks like one of the top teams in the country. The roster had recently secured the second position at the Call of Duty Mobile India Cup, a 35 lakh INR tournament.
