Team Vitality History
Team Vitality, as mentioned earlier, was founded in 2013. However, the clan remained inactive and didn’t participate in any major tournament till December 9, 2015.
The clan acquired Gambit Gaming’s spot at the 2016 EU LCS spring split. Team Vitality signed Raymond Tsang as the first player under its banner. Later they added Lucas Simon-Meslet, Ilyas Hartsema, Erlend Våtevik Holm, and finally, Petter Freyscuss to the team’s first roster.
Shaunz, who was a coach for Gambit Gaming, was signed by Team Vitality as the head coach for the team.
Later, the clan expanded into other games, with multiple teams competing for top honors in various eSports tournaments. On February 11, 2022, the whole roster of Rainbow Six Siege left the group.
