Fortnite Global Champion Cooper signs with Dignitas

FNCS Global Champion Cooper is the newest member of Dignitas Fortnite.

Dignitas is a predominant force in the Fortnite competitive scene, possessing a talented roster from top to bottom. With the likes of 2019 Fortnite World Cup Champion Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf and community pillar AussieAntics under its banner, there’s not much the organization lacks. However, that did not stop them from adding the Fortnite FNCS Global Champion Cooper “Cooper” Smith to an already robust lineup. 

Dignitas adds Global Champion Cooper to a loaded Fortnite roster

Just hours before Cooper began his quest to win back-to-back FNCS titles, he officially announced his signing with Dignitas. The North American-based organization has dominated the scene from a talent perspective, despite others such as Manchester City and Agent signing some of the scene's top names. Cooper was among the most sought-after free agents following his $500K payday this past October. 

After winning the Global Championship, Cooper returned home and has built an impressive following on social media. Cooper now joins fellow Fortnite pro players Bugha, Khanada, Acorn, Pgod, and Duke, many of whom have also tasted FNCS victory.

There’s not much the pair of Cooper and duo partner Matthew “Mero” Faitel have not accomplished in Fortnite. Mere months ago, the two players won the most significant LAN tournament since the World Cup. Despite this achievement, the two coasted into the FNCS Major 1 Upper Bracket and made quick work of the field. 

It took just one game and a casual 11-elimination win for the talented tandem to secure a spot in the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals. This was certainly not a bad day for Cooper, who is now a member of Dignitas and on the path to another Fortnite Champion Series Finals.
