Brazilian esports organisation FURIA has announced that Kaike “KSCERATO” Cerato and Yuri “yuurih” Santos will renew their expiring contracts to remain with the Counter-Strike 2 squad.

Following the expiration of their massive five-year deals, which were signed in June 2019, both players have chosen to stay with the outfit that they have now been apart of for over six years.

Although there were rumours surrounding KSCERATO’s future, due to interest from Team Liquid in December, he has decided to stay with the team.

The 24-year-old is a highly respected player in the Counter-Strike world, and he has already been ranked as a world’s top 20 player (#18 2020, #15 2021, #9 2022, #19 2023) in each of the last four years.

As for his teammate, yuurih, he is in the prime of his career as another 24-year-old, and even though he doesn’t have the same accolades as KSCERATO, he is a valuable role player for FURIA.

Both KSCERATO and yuurih will sign three-year deals to remain with the team, which is ranked 19th in the world rankings, until the end of June 2027.

Meanwhile, FURIA also announced that they have officially signed Felipe “⁠skullz⁠” Medeiros from Team Liquid, with both teams finally coming to an agreement to transfer the 22-year-old.

After a disappointing season with Liquid, skullz is expected to find his best under the leadership of Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo and in the comfort of an all-Brazilian roster.

The final piece of the puzzle that was confirmed alongside the news of skullz’ signing was that Sid “sidde” Macedo would take over as head coach for Nicholas “⁠guerri⁠” Nogueira, who has changed roles to become FURIA’s Head of Esports.

Skullz and sidde will make their debut for FURIA at the Esports World Cup CS2 tournament when they clash with Natus Vincere on July 17 in the opening round of the event.
