Made in Brazil confirm return
Made in Brazil have announced their return to activity, with the new line-up due to be unveiled at a live event in São Paulo on June 23.
The unveiling will take place at the Transamérica Expo Center at 21:00 and will be broadcast live on television and on the Internet.
Made in Brazil founder Paulo Velloso and some of the stars who made history with the organisation will be at the event, named “MIBR - O Retorno” [MIBR - The Return].
There will be two showmatches, pitting the new line-up against former mibr members and against a team made up of five players determined by an online qualifier. Jason "moses" O'Toole and Liquid coach Wilton "zews" Prado will be in charge of the English-language cast of the event, which is scheduled to last three hours.
Made in Brazil were one of the most successful organisations in the 2000s, winning several international competitions, most notably ESWC 2006. Raphael "cogu" Camargo, Lincoln "fnx" Lau and Carlos "KIKOOOO" Henrique Segal are some of the players who made history with mibr, who closed their doors in 2012 after not fielding a team for a year.
At the start of the year, Paulo Velloso confirmed that Immortals had opened talks with a view to acquiring the Made in Brazil brand. The North American organisation have been strongly linked with a move for the current SK line-up, with Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's troops having only a few weeks left on their contracts.
Tickets for the event can be purchased on imt.gg/mibrtickets, with prices ranging from 15$ to 115$.
