The 4th invited team to the PLG Grand Slam is the home-grown champion, NASR eSports!
The CS GO team was established in 2015 as Risky Gaming. A local based team who was doing damage in Asia. In 2017, they hit a standstill and needed a bigger organization to support them and take them to the next level. Nasr eSports bought the team and helped achieve the next step in their CS GO journey.
Nasr eSports is an E-Sports club located in the Middle East aiming to gather the best talent in the region. The CSGO division has been undefeated in the Middle East region for over 2 years in Lan events and are looking to maintain the winning streak.
