Fortnite Champion Setty joins Manchester City Esports

Setty is ready to dominate the FNCS under Manchester City’s Esports team!

Manchester City's esports division has announced an expansion of its Fortnite team, adding two-time Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) winner Iwo 'Setty' Zając to its roster. A veteran of four years in the competitive scene, the 20-year-old Polish player has consistently remained atop the challenging European region. With the FNCS in full force this year and more than $7 million up for grabs, ManCity has agreed to terms with the top talent.

Manchester City adds ultra-talented Fortnite pro 'Setty'

The announcement occurred on February 8, before the FNCS Major 1 Semi-Finals. Setty, who entered free agency after Tundra Esports closed its Fortnite division, had been awaiting opportunities since October. Sure enough, the football Manchester City's Esports team scooped up the FNCS Invitational 2022 winner.

“I’m really excited to be representing Man City Esports and can’t wait to get started wearing the shirt," said Setty. "I have high ambitions for the season and I’m hoping to make the fans proud with what I think I can achieve on the Fortnite stage. After finishing second last year, I want to take back the FNCS Global Championship and help City win our first ever FNCS too.”

After winning the FNCS Invitational in 2022 with long-time duo partner Michał 'Kami' Kamiński, the duo remained consistent. The pair followed that performance up with a second-place result in the FNCS Global Championship 2023. As part of ManCity Esports, Setty joins fellow Fortnite pros Skram, Threats, and Trippernn.

Setty is a jack-of-all-trades

Considering his achievements, Setty will go down in the record books as one of the best Fortnite players ever. His first significant accomplishment occurred alongside trio teammates Kami and Teeq in Chapter 2 Season 8. The three players dominated the FNCS Finals that season, netting them $100K each.

Setty's other standout performances happened in a LAN setting when the pressure was immense. He took first place in DreamHack Summer 2022 and FNCS Invitational 2022 and second in last year's FNCS Global Championship 2023. The Polish player has been impactful in every conceivable game mode.

Setty and Kami hope to redeem themselves with a win in the FNCS Global Championship 2024. We'll have to wait and see how the pair perform as Setty embarks on his Fortnite quest under the famed Manchester City banner.
