NiP and fnatic invited to StarSeries i-League Season 8

Following the invitation of two Brazilian teams, two Swedish sides have now been added to the StarSeries i-League Season 8 roster, NiP and fnatic.

StarSeries i-League Season 8, which is slated to take place in Belek, Turkey, on October 21-27, will have two Swedish sides present, NiP and fnatic, who will fight in the 16-team tournament for their share of the $500,000 prize pool.

fnatic come off a win at DreamHack Masters with their new roster

fnatic have been invited to the upcoming StarSeries i-League Season 8 after becoming DreamHack Masters Malmö champions, winning the grand final against Vitality in their first tournament since revamping the roster with Maikil "Golden" Selim and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist.

Joining them will be NiP, whose last tournaments were BLAST Pro Series Moscow, where they came in third, the V4 Future Sports Festival, where they went out in the quarter-finals, and DreamHack Masters Malmö, where they once again had a quarter-final finish—this time with Simon "twist" Eliasson on the roster—after losing a three-map series to fnatic.

With the two additions, the current StarSeries i-League Season 8 team list is the following:

Kazakhstan AVANGAR
