Guild Esports has announced the signing of Jannis ‘JannisZ’ Matwin as the fifth member of its pro Fortnite team.
JannisZ is a two-time winner of the FNCS and currently ranked third in Europe. The addition of JannisZ to its already #1 ranked EU Fortnite roster demonstrates the commitment from Guild to find and train the most exciting esports talent.
JannisZ will join Tai ‘TaySon’ Starčič, Nikolaj ‘Flikk’ Frøslev, Henrik ‘Hen’ Mclean and Anas ‘Anas’ El-Abd as Guild’s Fortnite ‘God Squad’ having also recently competed against the roster in Guild’s ‘Lockdown Ladder’ tournaments. He will be competing under the Guild banner in all upcoming European and international Fortnite tournaments, starting with FNCS Chapter 2 Season 6 on April 22.
“We’ve already reached new heights in 2021 with our first major trophy – but to be the best, you need to keep on building and setting new goals and challenges. Signing JannisZ is part of this continuous growth – he’s an exceptional player, and will further strengthen an already dominant Guild EU Fortnite team. We’re looking forward to welcoming JannisZ to the squad, and bringing home more trophies for Guild this year,” Grant Rousseau, Director of Esports at Guild, said.
“I’ve achieved a lot in Fortnite – but it was a real highlight to win the recent FNCS trios with Hen. I’ve gotten to know the Guild squad well, through tournaments and the Lockdown Ladder. Joining the organisation and playing alongside some of the best players in the world was an amazing opportunity to take the next step in my career. I’m looking forward to doing my part to bring Guild Esports even more success,” JannisZ said.
