Despite being based in the Netherlands, it looks like Team Liquid doesn’t care about that. Evidenced by them choosing a pro FIFA player Danish nationality. He is Lasse ‘Kongen’ Baekkelund.
Kongen got this opportunity after he was ranked 6th in FIFA in his country. In addition, at the last 2017 Copenhagen Games, he took second place. Previously, Kongen was defending his country’s team namely OB Odense.
The FIFA Interactive World Cup European Regional Finals will be Kongen’s first competition under the Team Liquid banner which will be held on June 9.
And here is the introductory video of Lasse “Kongen” Baekkelund, a special from Team Liquid for his loyal fans.
It was great to be the first FIFA player to compete for Team Liquid, especially at the blissful moment as I was making my way to the FIWC Europe Regional Finals. Joining Team Liquid will give me new opportunities, plus knowledge and support to help me grow and develop as a player. I can’t wait to compete with this team that has a great history in esports, and hope to add the first FIFA trophy to Team Liquid’s list of accomplishments!
