G2 Esports‘ founder and CEO, Carlos “Ocelote” Rodriguez, issued a statement regarding the formation of the new G2 Gozen roster. He was quoted saying –
To me they aren’t a female team, they are our VALORANT team. At G2, we build teams and bring in players based on skill and brand fit. These are amongst the best female players in the world and we’re proud to have them. We’ll support them all the way, as we support all our teams, and look forward to seeing them grow and kick some ass as part of the G2 army.
Cloud9 White, a Valorant female team from North America, is one of the best in the world. As a result, G2 Esports expanding its partnership with G2 Gozen will contribute to the growth of worldwide esports competition.
Regardless of their gender identity, the organization’s goal is to empower both men and women. With some of the best Valorant female athletes in the world on their roster, it will be intriguing to see how the new G2 Gozen fares in the next competitions.
