Cloud9 Signs GOLDEN to CSGO Roster

We at Cloud9 are ecstatic to be welcoming Maikil GOLDEN Selim to our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster! Golden was with the team as a stand-in at the recent ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2018 and we’re excited to make him a fixture of our roster moving forward.

Golden previously played for Fnatic, where he helped them acheieve victory at the World Electronic Sports Games 2017 World Finals and a 3rd/4th-place finish at DreamHack Masters Marseille 2018. We're eager to see the successes he helps build as a member of C9!

“I can’t express how much I want to wear the Cloud9 jersey and give my all for the fans. After just one week with the team, I feel like I’m at home already. The atmosphere has been unreal and I’m looking forward to the success we’ll have in the near future, and maybe a few rib-eyes on the way.”
— Maikil GOLDEN Selim
“Coaches, players, and myself were impressed with the professionalism and structure Golden brought to our team. The organization is thrilled to be moving forward with him as a part of Cloud9. Welcome, Golden!”
— Jack Etienne, Cloud9 CEO & Owner

The team is gearing up to defend their title as Major Champions at the upcoming FACEIT Major: London 2018, which begins on September 5th and is the next opportunity to root for Golden and the Cloud9 team!
