Movistar Riders sign ex-KPI
Movistar Riders have announced that they have completed the signing of the former KPI team.
The Spanish team had been widely expected to join Movistar Riders after parting ways with KPI, under whom they had established themselves as the strongest side in the country.
The team represent a considerable upgrade from Movistar Riders' previous squad, who finished sixth at ESL Masters Spring. The Spanish organisation, which was founded in January by mobile carrier company Movistar, is also heavily involved in many other esports games, including League of Legends, Hearthstone and Call of Duty.
Alejandro "ALEX" Masanet's men were recently seen in action at DreamHack Valencia, where they defeated Envy in the first round of the group stage before being eliminated following defeats to Heroic and to the French team.
