Update on our VALORANT roster: eMIL selected as new Head Coach

We’re extremely thrilled to announce Emil “eMIL” Sandgren as the new coach for our VALORANT team. Despite the game’s competitive scene being only in its infancy, eMIL has already fortified himself as one of the best coaches out there, leading teams such as FABRIKEN and BONK to multiple top placements.

Jonas Gundersen, COO at Ninjas in Pyjamas: 
Emil is a young and exciting coach, showing great promise already. He brings tactical knowledge, creativity and a deep passion for taking our VALORANT team to the top, with very similar views on modern performance philosophy. I’m very excited to have him as part of the NiP journey.

For the 25-year-old former Overwatch professional, this move is not only the biggest task up to date. His joining NiP also fulfills a long-chased dream.

Emil “eMIL” Sandgren
Ever since I started in esports, joining the legendary NiP has been a dream of mine. As a Swede, I couldn’t be more honoured to represent Ninjas in Pyjamas and make this dream a reality. I’m very excited to join their VALORANT team as the new Head Coach, and I’m prepared to put my heart and soul into this!


You don’t have to wait for eMIL’s debut - it’s just around the corner. He’s coaching our VALORANT boys in BLAST Twitch Invitational, with the first game versus G2 Esports going live at 15:30 CEST today.
