Malcaide was our best candidate after a thorough search and we couldn’t be more happy with him joining G2!

He will now set his sights on leading the G2 team as a contender for the Clash Royale inaugural league trophy.
Here is what Malcaide had to say about joining G2 Esports:
“I am very pleased to join G2 Esports as their Clash Royale Team Manager, as one of the most experienced players around and with background in management it seemed the obvious career choice to pursue. It’s an exciting time for the game as the biggest mobile competition arises, and I am both humbled and motivated to build a team capable of competing for the gold. I am very grateful to the G2 organization for this opportunity and I look forward to my first day at the office!”
