Lions add CS:GO team
Lions have announced that they have jumped on the CS:Global Offensive bandwagon with a Swedish-based team.
This new team consists of five former 1.6 players, some of whom are relatively known in the Swedish scene for attending a number of LAN events with different mix teams.
Lamar "niwen" Mahmuzić and Daniel "barsiC" Fanous were recently in action at SteelSeries GO with Lemondogs, helping the team to finish third in the tournament.
Marcus "windster" Andersson, Eddie "zape" Härdeman and Andre "relik" Larsson make up the rest of the team, who will be in attendance at DreamHack Winter.
"We got in touch with Lions some weeks ago, we talked a lot and got interested in joining them," Mahmuzić told HLTV.org.
"Lions are a really big organisation, and it means a lot to our careers to be playing for them.
"We will do everything to make them happy to have us as their team."
The Swedish team participated in the Go for SteelSeries online tournament last week under the name surast@cb, crashing out in the Round of 16 following a 2-1 defeat against ROCKSTAR.
Lions have the following CS:GO team:
Lamar "niwen" Mahmuzić
