Fredrik “REZ” Sterner, who has been with the Ninjas for more than 4 years now, has extended his contract with the Swedish org again. The extension would see him as a part of the organization until 2025, and at just 23 years old, the world is the canvas for the aim star.

Joining NiP when he was just 17 years old, REZ has shown immense improvement over the years and has only gone from strength to strength. He debuted when CSGO and CS 1.6 Legends Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg and Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund were still part of the team, and REZ credits them too for the turn his career has taken.

With this new deal, REZ will be part of NiP till 2025. Currently, he’s the oldest standing member of the roster, spending 4 years with them and counting while the second oldest member of the squad is Nicolas ‘Plopski’ Gonzalez Zamora, who has spent 2 years on the roster.

With the signing of the Tom Cruise of CSGO, Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz, NiP have found their own dynamic duo to take over the reins from “f0rest” and “GeT_RiGhT”, and that has reflected in their performances on the server. Both of them have been beacons of hope for them as the roster undergoes transition with the addition of a new fifth.

In the announcement of the contract extension, REZ said “Now I’m the one bringing wisdom, while I click heads better than ever before. Damn it feels good to be a Ninja.” when asked about how things are different now, compared to when he joined. The COO of NiP too shed light on this, “Fredrik is about to enter the prime time of his career, and I’m thrilled that he’s trusted us with another four years,” he said in a statement.

NiP will continue with the following roster for the time being, lest they miss out on any RMR points:

  • Fredrik “⁠REZ⁠” Sterner
  • Nicolas “⁠Plopski⁠” Gonzalez Zamora
  • Hampus “⁠hampus⁠” Poser
  • Linus “⁠LNZ⁠” Holtäng
  • Nicolai “⁠device⁠” Reedtz
  • Björn “⁠THREAT⁠” Pers (Coach)
