UK esports organisation LDN UTD have today announced the transfer of professional Czech Valorant player Ondřej ‘Monsteerr’ Petrů to Team Heretics for an undisclosed fee.

The move comes as Heretics look to rebuild their Valorant roster. They previously had UK coach Tanishq ‘Tanizhq’ Sabharwal with them, who stepped away last month.

LDN UTD say Monsteerr is a highly talented player that first joined the organisation as a free agent in early 2021, ‘and as a result of his key performances in the VCT qualifiers and other tournaments has quickly established a reputation as one of the best Sentinels in the game’. 

At the same time, LDN UTD have announced the signing of Lithuanian player Lukas ‘Feqew’ Petrauskas, who joins having previously played for Team Vitality.

Geoff ‘m1sfit’ Woodward, LDN UTD’s IGL, said: “We have really enjoyed playing with Monsteerr. It was clear from the start that he was an exciting talent for the future, and whilst we did not expect to see him snapped up so quickly, we are excited for his future and wish him well.

“At the same time, we’ve been playing with Feqew recently, and qualified with him for the ESL Prem last night, so with his pedigree having been at Vitlaity, we’re excited for what the future holds at LDN UTD for all of us going forward.”

“I want to thank LDN UTD. They took a chance with me, and I have been handed a dream opportunity to further my career with Heretics. I will always be grateful to LDN UTD and be keeping a close eye out on their results!”

Yesterday, Riot announced a mobile version of Valorant and 14m PC player numbers as the game celebrated its first anniversary.

Oliver Weingarten, founder and CEO of LDN UTD, told Esports News UK: “Despite the young age of Valorant, it is a major focus for LDN UTD and one we’ve clearly invested in early. We’ve taken a top down approach for this title given its prominence in the Riot ecosystem and explosive growth.

“Aligning with our strategy and values, we want to work to nurture UK grassroots talent and use our premium roster to develop that talent, and will have more news in that respect in due course.”

The news comes after UK caster Geo announced she will be casting the recently announced Valorant UK & Ireland Skirmish.
