What’s better than having one FIFA star? Partnering up with the world’s first FIFA academy Team Gullit and getting another — two-time European Champion Levi de Weerd. Under the new TG.NIP banner, our FUT Champions winner Olle “Ollelito” Arbin and Levi will compete in the FIFA Global Series.
With this collaboration, TG.NIP joins the FGS Masters program, meaning you’ll get to see Olle and Levi in a ton more content and tournaments this season. This year’s Team of the Year Cup has been canceled due to Covid-19, and so the next tournament for TG.NIP is the April 2022 Team of the Season Cup. Don’t worry, though — you can look forward to new FIFA content on our channels as well as EA’s to tide you over until spring.
"We are really excited to partner with NIP. We have been working together for almost two years now, ever since Ollelito made the transfer from Team Gullit to NIP. When EA announced the FGS Masters program, it was time to take the co-operation to the next level. The creation of TG.NIP allows us to fully focus on developing talent in the Team Gullit academy while having TG.NIP as one of the top-tier teams fighting for trophies in the major tournaments. By pairing Levi and Olle, we have one of the best rosters in the competitive FIFA scene."

"We go way back with Team Gullit, having first gotten in touch with them when we were signing Olle. Now that FIFA esports is professionalizing, I’m stoked to be deepening our cooperation in response and joining the FGS together, and I expect this relationship to get even closer over time. It’s a natural strategic move for us, with NIP alongside our subsidiary Shinobi working towards a very broad FIFA presence."
