Team SoloMid (TSM) has set a precedent in the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) by becoming the first organization to sign a second team following the rule change in December. The acquisition of the EMEA team, Phoenix Legacy, now rebranded as TSM Phoenix, marks a significant step in TSM’s expansion strategy.

Expansion into EMEA
TSM Phoenix, the new face of the former Phoenix Legacy, is an exciting addition to TSM’s portfolio. The team, featuring content creator SabzBear and new signee Kyri, reflects TSM’s commitment to diversifying its reach in the competitive Apex Legends scene.
Currently, TSM Phoenix is on the lookout for a third player to complete their roster. With SabzBear and Kyri as the core, the team is gearing up for their upcoming ALGS Pro League performance, potentially with AlphaDraft joining them if a third player isn’t signed in time.
