The team is led by captain Emmalee “EMUHLEET” Garrido, Amanda “rain” Smith, Kiara “milk” Makua, Melisa “Theia” Mundorff and Julie “Bouchard” Bouchard, which will become the first major all-female team to compete in the Riot Games FPS title.

“Dignitas is a longstanding champion of women in esports,” said NME and Dignitas CEO Michael Prindiville. “Since their recruitment in 2017, DIG FEhas raised four international trophies under the Dignitas banner; their expansion into Valorant is the first step in a larger women’s empowerment initiative the organization has planned for the coming months. Our goal is to become esports most empowering and educational organization for professional and aspiring female gamers, content creators and fans.”
