NAVI, full name Natus Vincere (Latin for "Born to Win"), is one of the most recognisable cybersports teams not only in Ukraine, but all over the world. Its history begins in 2009, when the Counter-Strike team was formed. Since then NAVI became a symbol not only of Ukrainian cybersport, but also of the world, demonstrating outstanding results in various disciplines.


From the very beginning of the team's existence NAVI emphasised on the development and support of talented players, which allowed them to quickly make a name for themselves in the international arena. Already in 2010 the team made a real sensation by winning many Counter-Strike 1.6 tournaments, including gold at the World Cyber Games 2010. This year became the starting point in the history of NAVI, opening a new era in cybersports in Ukraine.


Continuing to grow, NAVI expanded their presence in the cybersports arena, adding games such as Dota 2, FIFA, Fortnite and others to their portfolio. The team has also achieved significant success in Dota 2, including winning The International 2011, which was a groundbreaking moment not only for the team, but for the entire cybersports community, demonstrating the huge prize pools and popularity of this area.


What makes NAVI special is their ability to adapt to changes in the cybersports industry and maintain a high level of play in all disciplines. The team is constantly researching new strategies and game mechanics, which keeps them among the leaders on the world stage. This flexibility and constant pursuit of excellence has been the key to their long-term success.


Supporting their fans is also an important part of NAVI's philosophy. The team has one of the largest and most active fan communities in the world, which provides them with significant support at all tournaments. NAVI are also active on social media and organise various events to interact with fans, emphasising the importance of communicating with and supporting the community.

NAVI's achievements in eSports have been recognised on numerous occasions at various awards and competitions where the team has won awards for best performance, teamwork and individual achievements of their players. These successes have not only solidified NAVI's status as a leader in cybersports, but have also contributed significantly to the cybersports industry as a whole.


Today, NAVI continues to hold a high position in global cybersports, regularly participating and winning major tournaments and championships. The team does not rest on its laurels and continues to develop, attracting new talents and experimenting with game strategies.


NAVI achievements


The team became the first in the history of cybersports to win three major Counter Strike tournaments in one year - World Cyber Games 2010, Intel Extreme Masters and Electronic Sports World Cup.


In 2011, the team won the biggest tournament in the game of Dota 2 - The International. In 2021 NAVI Counter-Strike: Global Offensive won the major tournament - PGL Major Stockholm 2021.


Also in 2021, the team won the Intel Grand Slam. On 31 March 2024, they won the first major tournament for Counter-Strike 2, PGL Major Copenhagen 2024.


The Ukrainian team still has many tournaments ahead, where they will definitely prove their professionalism and continue to glorify Ukraine on the world stage.
