fnatic have announced that star player Ludvig “Brollan” Brolin has signed a new three-year deal, keeping him in the organisation until 2024. The 18-year-old has been an integral part of the Swedish team since his signing from Red Reserve in 2018, making the HLTV Top 20 in 2019 (No.19) and 2020 (No.15).
Brollan burst onto the scene in 2017 when he appeared in the first edition of the ‘GAMERZ’ esports reality show. He made his first international appearance in November of that year as he filled in for Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson in the WESG EU & CIS Regional Finals, helping fnatic to qualify for the World Finals.
Before the end of the year, he joined GODSENT, whom he represented for six months before the squad was acquired by Red Reserve. But four months later, he was snatched by fnatic as a replacement for Robin “flusha” Rönnquist.
Brollan has helped fnatic to LAN titles at PLG Grand Slam 2018 and DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019. Last year, he won his first MVP medal in the team’s title-winning campaign in ESL Pro League Season 11, which was played online.
The announcement of Brollan‘s renewal will be warmly welcomed by fans following the team’s disappointing start to 2021. fnatic, who brought in rookie Jack “Jackinho” Ström Mattsson jn January, finished runners-up to Virtus.pro in cs_summit 7 but then went out of the IEM Katowice Play-In after just two matches. The Swedes will return to action next week in Group D of ESL Pro League Season 13, which also includes Liquid, Endpoint, Evil Geniuses, Virtus.pro and Astralis.
