Vitality signs Nivera as the sixth player in their CS:GO roster
Nabil “Nivera” Benrlitom will be joining the French CS:GO team- Vitality, and leaving his current team Heretics. Vitality has announced that he will become a fully active member of the roster.
Nivera, who spent the past seven months with Team Heretics, is the younger brother of CS:GO legend Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom.
He joins the Vitality roster alongside Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, Cedric "RpK" Guipouy, Richard "shox" Papillon and Kevin "misutaaa" Rabier.
The Belgian player wielded both the rifle and awp in his former team where he played alongside Fabian “kioShiMa” Fiey and Lucas “Lucky” Chastang.
Nivera will debut for Vitality at the BLAST Premiere Fall Series
Vitality announced that the newest player will be a fully active member of the roster and will allow for strategic rotation for competitions. The roster has been locked and Nivera will debut for Vitality at BLAST Premiere Fall Series at the end of October.
"We truly believe in the importance of nurturing young talent and Nivera was such a natural fit when we were exploring expansion," Team Vitality President and Co-Founder Fabien "Neo" Devide said. "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".
Nivera averaged a 1.12 rating in 2020 for Heretics and plays a different style of Counter Strike compared to his older brother.
"I look forward to showcasing my unique playstyle and contributing personally to upcoming victories," the 19-year-old Belgian-Moroccan player said.
