LNZ joins Young Ninjas
The 18-year-old will make his first appearance for the team later on Tuesday.
NIP have announced that their academy roster, Young Ninjas, is once again complete following the addition of Linus "LNZ" Holtäng. The Swedish player will fill the void left by Erik "ztr" Gustafsson, who has been playing for the organisation's main team since Simon "twist" Eliasson was benched, at the beginning of the month.
LNZ has spent most of his career playing for British teams, including CeX, Wind and Rain and nerdRage. He competed in ESEA Advanced Season 34 with Lilmix and in Svenska Elitserien Fall 2020 with Prima alongside ztr and fnatic's Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattsson.
“We’ll invest heavily in this and work hard to equip young Swedish talents with everything they need in order to develop further," NIP COO Jonas Gundersen told HLTV.org. "Sweden has an incredibly rich history of having the very best talent within the FPS genre of games. We feel that it’s a part of our DNA to help rekindle that so we can keep being a world dominating nation".
LNZ joins Young Ninjas ahead of the team's first match in Svenska Elitserien Spring 202, against the new Lemondogs roster. Later this week, the squad will be competing in the Esportal Nordic Invitational against teams like Lilmix, Astralis Talent and Singularity.
