Team Rogue Expands Into FIFA, Signs Top Player MSDossary
LAS VEGAS, May 27, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Rogue, Las Vegas’ professional esports organization, has signed top FIFA player Mosaad “MSDossary” Aldossary. Aldossary is the first Saudi Arabian FIFA player to be signed by a major American esports organization. In April, Aldossary won the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) Champions Cup in Manchester, defeating Philipp “Eisvogel” Schermer in the Grand Final by a score of 6-4.
Aldossary was one of 128 players to enter the three-day FIFA 18 tournament held at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, UK. This victory secured him a place in the eWorld Cup playoffs and a $22,000 prize. Aldossary hailed the impressive win as the biggest victory of his career.
“After winning the FUT Champions Cup, I was getting a lot of offers from Middle Eastern esports organizations, but I was really looking to join an international organization. It means a lot to me to join such a renowned team like Rogue,” said Aldossary. “Esports are really popular in the Middle East and there are a lot of people here who love it and always push me to grow as a player. I’m excited to represent them on a professional level as part of team Rogue.”
“Aldossary is going to be an incredible addition to our championship-caliber roster of esports athletes,” said Frank Villarreal, Rogue owner and co-founder. “He plays with a high level of skill and confidence, and we’re excited for how he’ll contribute to the success of our organization.”
“With more than 100 million gamers in the Middle East, it’s a hotbed for quality esports talent, and the first of many Middle Eastern players we’ll be looking to sign to Team Rogue,” said Amish Shah, Founder and Chairman of ReKTGlobal, who acquired Rogue in 2017. “Our recent investment into OverPowered Network not only gives us better access to scouting regional talent, but also opens up opportunities to connect the region with all the services ReKTGlobal provides. We’re setting the foundation for the growth of esports in the Middle East.”
Rogue, known for yielding champions in multiple games — including PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, CS:GO and H1Z1 — was founded in May of 2016 in Las Vegas. The company quickly became a top esports organization in North America, with a global presence in several of the world’s most popular games. Rogue has strategically expanded its roster to include teams in CS:GO, Rocket League, H1Z1, Vainglory, and Rainbow Six: Siege, and players like popular Fortnite streamer DrLupo, who plays duos with the top Fortnite streamer Ninja daily and has close to 1,000 victories with him. In April, DrLupo was one of the top three streamers on Twitch.
