The team is dedicated to cultivating an interactive and engaged community, fostering excitement among both French and international fans.

“Similar to our recent announcements, Team Vitality is continuing its international development by placing particular emphasis on the excellence that characterises our club,” explains Fabien “Neo” Devide, co-founder and President of Team Vitality. “Our expansion this year is not limited to establishing a solid foundation, but making our first step in connecting with our North American audience. By integrating key athletes and personalities, we are strengthening our presence with this significant section of our fanbase.”
