VIETNAM – Team Flash have announced their entrance to the VALORANT scene, bringing over the entirety of the Tài Năng Trẻ roster that won the 2024 Predator League Vietnam one month ago over Fancy United Esports in the grand finals.
This move confirms the swirling rumors about Tài Năng Trẻ’s acquisition, especially since they were initially registered under Team Flash for the aforementioned competition.

“Here are some familiar names to the VALORANT community in Vietnam, and they have proven their talents with a series of impressive achievements in domestic and international tournaments. We wish you all the best in your competitions and hope to bring home some major titles while wearing the Team Flash jersey. Once again, welcome to the Flash family.”
