Mkers and G2 Esports announce the signing of an important agreement for the sale of the Rainbow Six Siege pro player Luigi “Gemini” Ferrigno. G2 Esports represents one of the most prestigious and competitive esports organizations in the world and will offer Luigi the opportunity to compete on the most important stages of the international scene.
Gemini has been part of Team Mkers since 2020 and in recent years he has strung together a series of successes with his teammates, such as the victory of the Italian Cup, numerous victories in the PG Nationals circuit but especially the qualification to the Six Invitational in 2021first and only participation ever for an Italian team.
“Gemini, with his experience and proven skills, has proven to be one of the best Rainbow Six Siege players out there, so we believe he deserves to join a Tier 1 team,” he said. Diego Hicham Aazzi, Esports Manager at Mkers.
“We have demonstrated on several occasions that we are the most successful competitive reality in Italy and among the protagonists of the European scene. This, however, was not enough to obtain an access slot to the Pro League, despite the ongoing dialogue with the publisher. The importance of the national competitive scene is penalized by the very weight of the Italian Rainbow Six Siege market compared to other countries.Furthermore, the small number of investors, often only endemic to the industry, does not favor the development of a competitive circuit such that the large international organizers have an interest in providing Italy with the same access and participation methods. Therefore, the fundamental conditions are lacking to allow Mkers to continue investing in the competitive Rainbow Six. As soon as the professional circuit of the title guarantees the teams an equal access process to competitions compared to other European and world nations, we will be ready to return to the international stage again,” concludes Aazzi.
Mkers is extremely proud to have been able to accompany, throughout its history, numerous young Italian talents in a path of growth and success. Therefore, she wishes to express her gratitude for her continued commitment to carry forward the colors of the organization. The agreement with G2 Esports represents a step forward in Mkers’ growth strategy which, with this top-level transfer-market operation, confirms itself as a point of reference in the Italian and international esports world, ready to support and enhance emerging talents.
