The countdown is running out, everything is now ready and the Atalanta Esports team are very close to their official debut, scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday 31 March, in the first edition of the PES eSerieA TIM.
Atalanta Esports will be represented by Jacopo JC Stunner 90 Crocchia and Gianluca BESTIA_93 Castellano.
But who are the Nerazzurri players?
Jacopo Crocchia, a.k.a. JC_Stunner_90, is 30 years old. He was born and lives in Rome. He’s been a huge fan of video games since he was 5 years old. He plays PES since the super Nintendo (when it was called Super ISS).
“Personally, wearing the Atalanta jersey is an indescribable feeling – said Jacopo Crocchia -. In the last few years, I deeply admired Gian Piero Gasperini’s team’s improvement and the type of football they offer, taking into account that it’s a Club that is getting more and more famous in Europe and all over the world. It’s important to remember that the team almost reached the semifinal of the Champions League last year, in their first appearance in the competition”.
“The fact that our generation of players is and will remain the first one that started the eSerie A TIM and being in the album of Panini is something unique – concluded JC_STUNNER_90 –, and inevitably will drive us to do our best. The right concentration will be crucial”.
Gianluca BESTIA_93 Castellano studies and works in life, but at the same time, I dedicate time to my hobbies, one of which is gaming, PES in particular.
“It’s a passion that has very deep roots – said Gianluca Castellano -. In fact, I play PES since the very first editions (when it was called Winning Eleven). But only since last year I’ve taken it seriously and started participating in the competition. In 2020 I was noticed by winning the Draft of the eSerie A. This year it was even more important for me and I managed to do better: in fact, I won again the Draft that will allow me to participate in the first virtual championship of Serie A. Moreover, I was close to qualifying for the final stage with the Italian eNational team”.
“I will participate in the first virtual eSerie A and I’ll do it wearing the Atalanta jersey – concluded BESTIA_93 –. For me, the idea of representing such an ambitious club that is becoming stronger is a unique feeling, a dream come true. It brings me a huge sense of responsibility. I’ll do my best. The eSerie A is a new experience for everybody an important starting point”.
