Bleed eSports have assembled a new roster of top prospects, led by former main team player Tyler “juicy” James.
SINGAPORE – Bleed eSports have unveiled their newest initiative, named Bleed Academy, which aims to refine, develop, and prepare up-and-coming Singaporean players to embark on their professional journey.
The squad will be spearheaded by Tyler “juicy” James, previously a player for the main lineup for two months following his loan signing from EMERGE late last year. He will be joined by “SHINSEI”, Reagan “reagzYY” Thun, Du-Min “dumin” Yeo, and former KPMOONIIBLM9 player “Kairo”.
“Today, we are excited and proud to announce our next step into VALORANT Esports.” Bleed eSports said in the announcement post. “With the right influence and resources, we aim to refine and develop their raw talent and prepare them for their journey in professional esports.”
Bleed eSports had been tipped to create an academy team since last month when the organization revealed that they would form an academy roster led by juicy and were looking for potential individuals.
The concept of fielding an academy roster is still relatively new in APAC, with just ZETA DIVISION and REJECT currently fielding one. Both Japanese teams most recently competed in UTAGE VALORANT Season 4, where they placed 3rd-4th and 5th-8th, respectively. Indonesia’s TEAMnxl> had Mencari Tempat Berlabuh as its academy team late last year, but did not last long.
Bleed Academy’s roster consists of:
- 🇸🇬 Tyler “juicy” James
- 🇸🇬 Reagan “reagzYY” Thun
- 🇸🇬 Du-Min “dumin” Yeo
- 🇸🇬 Zhong “SHINSEI” Kang Yeo
- 🇸🇬 Lee “Kairo” Kai Xi
