Vitality add Nivera as sixth man

Nabil “⁠Nivera⁠” Benrlitom has been signed as the sixth man for Vitality’s CSGO team the organization has revealed. A transfer form Heretics has been completed and will result in the Belgian player moving to a position which leaves plenty of question marks.

While other teams are attempting a similar path (ie. Astralis) it will remain interesting to see how the starting lineup is chosen. Bryan “⁠Maka⁠” Canda, Nicolas “⁠Keoz⁠” Dgus, and Ali “⁠hAdji⁠” Haïnouss were also a part of a shortlist to be picked up according to earlier reports.

“With his versatile playstyle, Nivera will be incorporated as a permanent member of the team as Team Vitality cements its strategic vision and further strengthens its position at the highest level of competitive CS:GO,” the official press release stated.

The brother to Adil “⁠ScreaM⁠” Benrlitom, Nivera will now be playing alongside several players with a history of competing with his older brother. Dan “⁠apEX⁠” Madesclaire, Cédric “⁠RpK⁠” Guipouy, and Richard “⁠shox⁠” Papillon all played alongside ScreaM during their lengthy careers. ScreaM has since swapped to VALORANT.

“Having a six-man roster will play an integral part as we commit to providing the best strategic environment for our players to perform at their best.” said Fabien “Neo” Devide, President & Co-Founder, Team Vitality in the announcement.
