With its existing CoD Mobile team, Vitality has three mobile esports teams in India.

Team Vitality has reinforced its commitment to the Indian esports ecosystem with two new teams. Vitality has announced its entry in Free Fire and Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) for 2022. 

Vitality Free Fire roster

To lead its Free Fire roster, Team Vitality has roped in Indranil ‘FABINDRO’ Saha. The former TSM and Sixth Sense player has several titles to his name, including the Free Fire Tri Series and the Esports Premier League 2021. 

As the team’s In-Game Leader, FABINDRO brings experience and the ability to guide the rest of the squad to victory.

I have been looking forward to Team Vitality’s entry into Free Fire”, said Indranil. “Since the org announced its venture into India, it has been my desire to one day be part of it. So, it is truly a dream come true. I do have a couple of talented players in mind that will make a winning team. We will be making a mark very soon in Free Fire tournaments, both domestic and international.”

FABINDRO

Free Fire is one of the most popular mobile games in the world. The Garena-owned mobile game was the most-downloaded title of December 2021.

Vitality BGMI roster

On the BGMI side of things, Vitality has roped in Pratik “AURUM” Mehra as the team’s coach. Pratik has represented India on multiple international tournaments in Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and China. He also led Fnatic to win the PUBG Mobile All-Stars Championship in 2019. 

2022 is off to a fantastic start for us. Following our industry-defining CS:GO and League of Legends roster reveals and announcing our multi-year partnership with Tezos, we are excited to share our further expansion into the mobile esports arena with Free Fire and BGMI. Both titles are immensely popular and have an unprecedented fan following in India and I am looking forward to seeing teams under the Team Vitality umbrella dominate the region and beyond.” – CEO of Team Vitality, Nicolas Maurer.

Doubling down on the Indian Mobile Market

India is one of the biggest countries when it comes to mobile gaming. After PUBG Mobile’s ban in the country, several other alternatives including Call of Duty Mobile, Free Fire and the recently released BGMI have taken up market share. 

Vitality’s investment into the Indian mobile system speaks volumes of the country’s potential as a mobile esports hotspot.

In 2018, Vitality received $22.7 million in investment from Indian entrepreneur Tej Kohli. The organization has used this investment to expand into Asia, especially with a focus on India. Vitality has teams in LoL and CS: GO, with its CS: GO roster being one of the best in the world.

Bringing their expertise in aiding young players to achieve their potential, orgs like Vitality and TSM are expected to change the face of Indian esports. 

In our endeavor to become the best, we always onboard people who share a similar mindset and thought process as ours. Legends like AURUM and FABINDRO joining us is a big step in our plans to fortify our position in the country. […] Additionally, with our exemplary existing line-up of athletes, a fully equipped Training and Streaming Facility, and Team Vitality’s esports pedigree, we are confident to soon become one of the highest-ranked teams in India, and internationally, in both Free Fire and BGMI.” said Randall Fernandez, Managing Director, Team Vitality India.
