Sprout add faveN

Sprout goes back to its roots signing the German rifler Josef "faveN" Baumann after Dennis "sycrone" Nielsen's departure.

After Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend's departure from Sprout in May, it was sycrone who joined the team and took the reins of the in-game leadership. With sycrone's departure announced late last month, the German organization are now bringing on the 18-year-old faveN.

Sprout regain their German core with the addition of faveN

The team's new addition was part of the EURONICS team that finished 1st and 2nd at the last two ESL Meisterschaft Finals and 4th in the last season of ESEA MDL Europe. This change will see Martin "PERCY" Wessel, one of the two remaining Danes, take the role of in-game leader.

“After it became clear that Euronics’ lineup would undergo a few changes, I wanted to use this opportunity to take the next step for my career. I really wanted to join Sprout because I knew that the organisation would be the perfect environment for me to keep growing as a player - denis and Spiidi are two German players with a lot of experience, who are able to perform exceptionally, NaToSaphiX and PERCY are two Danish players who will be able to guide me with their own unique playstyle and tow b is an amazing coach who I know will greatly support me in further developing my skills.

"My goal with Sprout is to stay in the Top 30 of the HLTV ranking and reach the EPL through the MDL! I am excited for the next months and I am ready to perform on my first LAN event together with Sprout.”

- Josef "faveN" Baumann

Sprout's new roster will be seen in action during the next season of MDL Europe and the GG.Bet qualifier for IEM Chicago, online, as well as at Games Clash Masters 2018 and StarSeries i-League Season 6 on LAN.

With faveN's addition, Sprout are now:

Germany Denis "denis" Howell
Germany Timo "Spiidi" Richter
Germany Josef "faveN" Baumann
Denmark Martin "PERCY" Wessel
Denmark Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen

Germany Tobias "tow b" Herberhold (coach)
