Team Vitality has made an impressive start to IEM Cologne as they have secured themselves a spot in the group stage after defeating both Renegades and Team Spirit.
Something that fans would have likely noted during their appearance in the competition was their outfit choices. The team rocked up to the competition wearing jerseys that were selected by fans through an online poll on the engagement app Socios.com. Ahead of the game, fans were given the chance to select between three separate designs and they ended up settling for the one that can be seen within the image below. Perhaps this could have let to the team's success? We're not exactly sure.
"At Team Vitality we are so proud of the success of our first fan token thanks to the support of our dedicated fans. With 350,000 sold at launch, $VIT marks the most successful esports FTO on Socios platform, we are honoured to share this milestone with our fans and partners at Socios and Chiliz. To see the fan selected jersey design on our CS:GO players on stage at such a major tournament like IEM Cologne was an exciting moment for us, and altogether represents how connected our players are with fans," said Nicolas Maurer, CEO, Team Vitality.
