February 25th, 2015 09:46

Keyd Stars have announced that they have secured the services of the former KaBuM.TD team.

The Brazilian decided against renewing their contract with KaBuM shortly after returning from the offline qualifier for ESL One Katowice, where they managed to secure one of the spots at the upcoming CS:GO major that were up for grabs.

The move signals Keyd Stars' first experience in CS:GO, just five months after the organisation signed a sponsorship deal with Vivo, the biggest telecommunications company in Brazil.

ex-KaBuM move to Keyd Stars

According to a statement from Keyd Stars, the players will travel to Europe one week prior to ESL One Katowice to prepare for the tournament, the first major in which a Brazilian team will be in attendance.

"This is a very special moment for me and for everyone on the team," Caio "zqk" Fonseca wrote on Facebook.

"This opportunity acknowledges our huge effort, which began at the end of last year and resulted in our qualification for ESL One Katowice despite all the adversities we had to overcome."

Keyd Stars' CS:GO lineup consists of:

Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Caio "zqkS" Fonseca
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
