G2 picks up Ibai, LVP casters for new Spanish content house

G2 Esports has announced its new Spanish content team, including some of the most popular Spanish League of Legends personalities.
The Spanish Creator House is joined by three LVP shout casters Ander "andeR" Cortés, Ibai "Ibai" Llanos, and Ernesto "BarbeQ" Folch, as well as content creator Antonio “Reven” Pine. With G2 founded in Spain and the owner Carlos "ocelote" Santiago being Spanish, it’s no wonder the organization is looking to better cater to the community in Spain.
“We are ready to bring all of Spain under the banner of the #G2ARMY,” G2 shared in the official announcement. “We’re pleased to announce our first ever creator’s house in beautiful Barcelona, bringing together the best talent Spain has to offer to stream and create high-quality content for the Spanish community.”
G2 has big plans for new content house in Barcelona
The four members will be G2’s brand ambassadors for the Spanish community. Of course, they will also be producing high volumes of content from the new house. Most of the members are already bringing in a large following for G2, especially with Ibai’s following on Twitter of over one million fans. Content houses are a popular trend within esports organizations, and G2 is taking this opportunity to reconnect with its domestic community.
The new members shared the news with their fans by revealing a two-part sketch they filmed with ocelote, saying this is a new era for all of them and stating their belief that they have what it takes to become the best source of entertainment in Spain.
“G2 must be the number one content creating team,” ocelote said in the video. “We have to be the most successful competitive team. G2 must be the number one in entertainment. We want to assemble the biggest team that creates entertainment in Spain.”
ocelote seems to be on an overall good path with G2. Besides signing big names for the new content house, G2’s League of Legends team is consistently doing well both in the LEC and internationally, though not all of the other organization’s teams are achieving that level of success.
