Esports: NIP confirms Brollen signing

A month after it was first reported to be in the works, NIP has completed the blockbuster signing of the former fnatic star Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin.

Brolin has officially joined NIP after transferring from fnatic, confirming a long-rumoured  change that was reported to be in the works in late February after the Swedish organisation lined up a heft bid. Fnatic are 25/1 to win the ESL Pro League.

Debut likely to be delayed

The newest addition joins NIP amidst their campaign in ESL Pro League Season 15, in which the Swedes have advanced to the playoffs from first place in Group A.

Brollan however is not expected to be able to join the team in the bracket stage due to the transfer regulations in place for the tournament.

Brollan will then take his place in the active roster in time for NIP's preparations for the upcoming Major Cycle, which will begin with the Regional Major Ranking tournaments in Bucharest, Romania next month.

The organisation hasn't revealed what roster will be used in the Major cycle, but it is expected that one of Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora or Love "phzy" Smidebrant will take a step back.
