Singaporean Singer JJ Lin Unveils Team SMG Valorant Esports Team

Singaporean singer and celebrity JJ Lin has officially entered the local gaming scene with a team signed to his esports organisation; Team SMG. They will compete in Riot Games’ new multiplayer FPS game, Valorant.

The all-Singaporean line-up of Team SMG consists of veterans who have experience in the professional esports arena for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The ‘SMG’ for Team SMG stands for Still Moving Under Gunfire.

The seven-member Team SMG Valorant will be making its debut on 27 July 2020 against other Southeast Asian teams in the Rise of Legion: Valorant July 2020.

Speaking with Channel News Asia, Lin has big plans for Team SMG.

He said:

“This is a milestone in my e-sports journey, one that is very close to my heart.

I strive to nurture home-grown talent in this burgeoning e-sports scene.”

Lin originally founded Team SMG in 2017 with former Dota 2 player and coach, Kenchi Yap. They have since competed and won several esports tournaments, including the 2017 Arena of Valor World Championship with their Taiwan-based team. There is also a PUBG team based in Shanghai.

However, he only made his debut entry into the Southeast Asian gaming market earlier this year in February 2020 after acquiring Malaysia-based Mobile Legends: Bang Bang team, Makan Cendol.
