sAw open to offers for team
SAW have announced that they are prepared to listen to offers for their squad.
In a statement, the Portuguese organisation stressed that they will only consider offers that "are fair and will help" the players, who have allegedly attracted interest from other teams in recent times. SAW added that, in case no concrete offers are made, they will continue to support the team "at least until the end of the year."
"The goal of the organisation was always to find sponsors that could make this project sustainable, considering that, at an early stage, it was created and managed by the players and staff, and only later became professional," the organisation added.
SAW was created at the start of the year following a split in Giants between Ricardo "fox" Pacheco and the trio of Christopher "MUTiRiS" Fernandes, Ricardo "rmn" Oliveira and Omar "arki" Chakkor, who decided to create their own team, linking up with the ex-OFFSET duo of Renato "stadodo" Gonçalves and Tiago "JUST" Moura.
The team have gone on to enjoy success regionally, most recently beating Heretics to the Orange Unity League title. After qualifying for the BLAST Spring Showdown, they defeated Vitality and played a close match against ENCE in the round-robin stage.
SAW, who will take part in this weekend's closed qualifier for DreamHack Open Summer, have the following roster:
