The new roster will go by OG LDN UTD.
OG have announced a strategic partnership with LDN UTD to reveal its Valorant roster. The LDN UTD Valorant team will be rebranded as OG LDN UTD in future tournaments.
OG has been rumored to enter Valorant for a long time, previously with KennyS on loan. However, following Riot denying permission, OG had to make changes to their plans. The team has now joined forces with LDN UTD to jointly manage the roster.
Very rarely do we have a chance to work with another value driven company and in LDN UTD we have found a perfect match. We love their community driven initiatives and what they are building, so when we all sat down together and spoke, we became very excited about this adventure together. We think they have done a very good job building and nurturing this project and we hope we can contribute to its success this new season 🌻JMR LUNA, CEO of OG esports.
The players will wear co-branded OG LDN UTD jerseys to represent this new partnership.
“Through this unique partnership, both organisations will provide world class support, including regular high end bootcamps and other performance services to the players, whilst also focus on community growth and joint events, with some taking place at LDN UTD’s Centre Of Excellence in Camden Town, London,” says the announcement.
