Gigantti, a Finnish household electronics shopping website with a focus on gaming, announced Wednesday through Twitter that it signed the Rest in Pyjamas Overwatch roster.

This is the company’s first venture into professional Overwatch, and the team will operate under the name Team Gigantti. The roster formerly known as Rest in Pyjamas was previously under the Ninjas in Pyjamas banner until the org dropped the roster June 21. The roster decided to stay together and compete in the Overwatch Contenders Season Zero in Europe and placed sixth. The coach Joni “seita” Paavola moved to the new team with the roster.

There has been one roster swap in Rest in Pyjamas, which parted ways with the support player Antti “kyynel” Kinnunen and added Benjamin “BigG00se” Isohanni on Friday. The signing with Gigantti saw only one more addition in the support staff in the form of Tomi “Tombha” Rinne as a manager.

Team Gigantti will compete in Overwatch Contenders Season 1. The roster is comprised of BigG00se, Tuomo “Davin” Leppänen, Jiri “LiNkzr” Masalin, Joonas “zappis” Alakurtti, Joona “Fragi” Laine and Aleksi “zuppehw” Kuntsi.
