TSM is one of the first teams confirmed to compete at this month’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gamescom Invitational in Cologne, Germany.

It’s only been a few weeks since TSM finished filling out its PUBG roster, but the squad will easily be one of the favorites heading into the tournament at gamescom. The team is made up of popular streamers Colton “Viss” Visser and Gary “BreaK” Marshall, who are joined by PUBG dominators Austin “SmaK” Haggett and Marius “aimPR” Ionita.

The original announcement of the tournament touted “80 of the world’s best PUBG players and influencers,” but TSM is the first professional team to be announced thus far.

ESL also announced that a team made up of content creators, called Team NEED LOOT, will also participate. That team consists of Drift0r, SoaR Kross, One_Shot_Gurl, and Sterling Toth, who is a co-creator of Epic Meal Time.

The tournament will feature Solo, Duo, first person Duo, and Squad games. It will be commentated by CS:GO announcer Lauren “Pansy” Scott and Halo commentator Richard “TheSimms” Simms, and takes place from Aug. 23 to 26.
