Sydney Saints sign winning ESL Women’s Open CS:GO team

The Sydney Saints have signed the winning ESL Women’s Open CS:GO team, it has recently confirmed.

The team, consisting of Jessica ‘ARTeMis’ Majrouh, Connie ‘Konii’ Ko, Yukie ‘Raizy’ Su, Liqi ‘Peachy’ Lin and Calise ‘Riv’ Newton, were victorious at this weekend’s inaugural ESL Women’s Open at the Intel Extreme Masters in Sydney.

“We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ve signed with the Sydney Saints,’ Jessica ‘ARTeMis’ Majrouh said. “This is such a great opportunity to continue our growth and development as the best female side in Australia and hopefully be a role model for those who wish to enter the CS:GO scene.”

The Sydney Saints are part of a partnership between Merlin Collective and Guinevere Capital. The partnership includes the Esports High Performance Centre, LG Dire Wolves, Sydney Drop Bears, EsportsMoji, Merlin Management and BR Extreme. This new acquisition will be based out of the Esports High Performance Centre in Sydney.

“I am incredibly excited to be working with such a talented team,” Chris White, CEO of Merlin Collective, added. “Knowing they have worked so hard to not only establish themselves as the premiere female CS:GO side, but to also gain massive amounts of respect across the industry.”

Congratulations to the new Saints team for the weekend win and new signing.
