BIG expand into women's Counter-Strike with equipa
The Iberian squad will make their debut under the BIG umbrella at the Impact League Season 1 Finals in Dallas.
BIG have announced the signing of Iberian CS:GO squad equipa, inheriting the mix's name to create their first women's lineup ahead of the team's appearance at the ESL Impact League Finals that will take place at the DreamHack Dallas festival from June 3-5.
The lineup, the core of whom have played together since 2020, have enjoyed modest success as equipa, winning a handful of ESEA Cash Cups and more recently, qualifying for the ESL Impact League Season 1 Finals through the online season in Europe by beating NAVI Javelins in the playoffs to earn their spot at the $123,000 event.
"I’m really looking forward to work with the BIG EQUIPA roster who are a perfect fit for us," Chief Gaming Officer of BIG, Christian Lenz, said in a statement. "Hopefully orgs like our friends from NAVI stepping into the female scene will motivate even more women to start playing on a professional level again."
