Natus Vincere is now accepting applications to its Esports Camp. 

The top ten most outstanding applicants will be selected to take part in the bootcamp experience. Starting in June, those ten players will train and compete in an Esports Camp until five players emerge as having the most potential. These five players will be signed to Na’Vi Junior’s roster. 

Former HellRaisers coach Amiran “aMi” Rehviashvili has been hired by Na’Vi to lead the new roster. He will be the one checking out the applications, along with Na’Vi’s esports director Andrey “b1ad3” Gorodenskiy. 

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players can apply now until May 16. Candidates must fit Na’Vi’s criteria. This includes being between 16 and 19 years old and having a FACEIT Rank 10 account. Candidates must also be fluent in Russian and be able to temporarily relocate to Kiev. The organization is also asking potential Esports Camp hopefuls to submit a short video explaining why they should be chosen as part of the new project.

The Ukrainian team is currently the third best CS:GO team in the world thanks to some impressive showings at recent tournaments. In April, Na’Vi were crowned the champions at StarSeries & i-League Season 7. The grand finals saw Na’Vi scoring a 3-0 sweeping victory over Fnatic. 

The $250,000 top prize was among the largest prizes won in CS:GO in Na`Vi’s history.

Na’Vi recently came in third at the IEM Katowice Major. Last year, the team placed second at the FACEIT major.
