Houston Dynamo FC announced an overhaul to its esports roster, signing George “GAdamou10_” Adamou and Martin “RemiMartinn” Oregel as the club’s esports players. This is the first time in franchise history that the club will have multiple FIFA players on its roster.
Adamou will represent the Dynamo in the eMLS circuit while the pair will team up to compete in FIFA Global Series events. Both players come to the Dynamo with proven track records of success in professional gaming.
Adamou joins the Houston Dynamo from the New York Red Bulls, where he was crowned the 2020 eMLS Cup Champion. With that win, Adamou earned the title of the best EA SPORTS™ FIFA 20 player in North America. The Queens, New York native is also among the most streamed professional FIFA players in North America.
Adamou followed that title up with a runner-up finish in the 2021 tournament, as well as a runner-up finish in the 2021 League Series One. Adamou says he chose to join the Houston Dynamo because of both the club’s winning track record in esports, having won the first eMLS Championship in 2018, and the general direction of the organization.
“This club has a rich history,” Adamou said. “I love the rebranding of the club. The club looks like it’s going in a very positive direction. I came here to win trophies. I’m a winner and that’s what I’m here for.”
RemiMartinn, who comes to Houston after a successful stint as the first eMLS player in LAFC history, finished in the top four in the same 2020 eMLS Cup that Adamou won. While he will not be competing in eMLS, he will combine with Adamou as a team to compete in international FIFA events. Prior to joining LAFC, RemiMartinn played for NoFuchsGiven esports, which is owned by Leicester City player Christian Fuchs.
“I feel great about joining Houston Dynamo FC, I think this is a massive opportunity for myself and a good change of scenery,” RemiMartinn said. “I am motivated to compete at the highest level, I believe I am one of the best players in North America and I’m ready to show that here in H-Town.”
