London-based esports organisation Excel Esports has announced that it has taken its first step into competitive Valorant, with the signing of team captain David "Davidp" Prins. Davidp joins the organisation following his success in the Ignition Series, where he is a 7x champion.
"I am really excited to have found a home with EXCEL ESPORTS. Since starting my journey in VALORANT I have showcased my ability to not only win trophies but grow and adapt my playstyle," said David "Davidp" Prins. "I can't wait to show everyone what we can achieve."
Excel has mentioned that its next step is to build out a coaching staff before looking to add more players to the team to play alongside Davidp.
"Ever since VALORANT was first announced we knew it was going to be a title with huge potential and one that we could thrive in," said Kieran Holmes-Darby, Co-Founder & Chief Gaming Officer, EXCEL ESPORTS. "However when it came to expansion we really wanted to take our time and find players and coaches that aligned with our vision so when we started talking to Davidp it felt like such a natural fit. We have big ambitions and are looking for the best and most promising talent to build out the roster and create a lasting legacy."
