Finnish esports organization ENCE has announced signing of Alvaro "SunPayus" Garcia and Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså to their CS:GO roster.
Thus, ENCE has confirmed earlier reports about negotiations with these players.
"After the changes made during the player break, we're excited to welcome Alvaro "SunPayus" Garcia and Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså into the ENCE family! We want to thank Movistar Riders and OG for making the player transfers seamless and well-executed," ENCE noted in a statement.
SunPayus came to ENCE from Movistar Riders. The 23-year-old AWPer should replace Aleksander "hades" Miskiewicz, who was benched earlier in August. The ENCE team highly appreciated SunPayus' performance at IEM Cologne.
"Many fans have already seen SunPayus' skills and potential during IEM Cologne 2022, where he and his team went toe-to-toe against the best teams in the world and made an incredible run all the way to the Semifinals and the packed LANXESS arena. Now, joining ENCE and his first-ever international team, SunPayus is hungry to unleash his full power," ENCE reported.
valde moved to ENCE from OG to replace Lotan "Spinx" Giladi, who switched to Team Vitality. ENCE's management is counting on the rich experience of the Danish rifler.
"Coming to us from OG, this 27-year-old Danish veteran brings in a huge amount of Tier 1 experience with 1011 maps played against Top 30 teams, just barely falling second for Snappi and his 1022 maps. Unsurprisingly, valde also shares some history with his fellow countryman as he and Snappi played together in Heroic from 2016 to 2017," highlighted in the statement.
The new lineup will debut in the Group C of ESL Pro League Season 16, starting on September 14th.
