19esports revealed their plans to form a VALORANT roster with the recruitment of Adolfo "Fit1nho" Gallego and Francesc "donQ" Savall last month. Both players came over from Vodafone Giants after releasing their team to pick up Orgless and add Johan "Meddo" Lundborg to the mix. However, it looks like they won’t be the only ones joining 19esports from the Spanish organization.

Their recent announcement showcased the addition of Salvador "Yurii" Gasco, Jon "jonba" Baraiazarra, and Javier "Vasili" Huélamo, all of which are former Vodafone Giants’ members, except for Vasili, who is another new face to the VALORANT scene.

The former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional played for S2V Esports, MAD Lions, Giants Gaming, among others. The Spanish player managed to get 2nd place in all of the ESEA Season 34: Intermediate Division Europe, the One Tap League Season 1: Stop #0, ESL Masters España Season 6, and the Liga de Videojuegos Profesional Season 11: Final Cup competitions. He proved his talents in CS:GO, and will definitely be interesting to see him transition into Riot Games’ tactical shooter.

As for the rest of the team, we have already seen them lift the titles for the LVP - Genesis Cup Visión, the ROG VALORANT Master Series Invitational #1, the Desafío Legión, the Guardianes GG Series #1, and the Guardianes GG Series #2. They have performed admirably throughout their tenure with the organization, and their time with 19esports should quickly prove fruitful.

19esports’ roster includes:

Adolfo "Fit1nho" Gallego Francesc "donQ" Savall Salvador "Yurii" Gasco Jon "jonba" Baraiazarra Javier "Vasili" Huélamo

Álvaro "sakke" Gómez (Coach)

Update: Just two days after the full team was announced and with only one VCT Open Qualifier played, Fit1nho has announced that he's decided he won't be playing with 19esports anymore.

The announcement brings some controversy as 19esports had to go through a long and expensive process to buy him out from Vodafone Giants and pay extra fees required by the country of Spain for his services. Fit1nho contends that he hadn't signed anything official yet, meaning his choice was within his rights.

This leaves the 19esports roster as follows:

Francesc "donQ" Savall Salvador "Yurii" Gasco Jon "jonba" Baraiazarra Javier "Vasili" Huélamo

Álvaro "sakke" Gómez (Coach)
