I like to think that this team is more than a group of people joining to play FIFA. It is true that it was FIFA who joined us in 2012, but it is us who maintains this connection to this day.
Our Pro Clubs adventure begins in 2012 on the PC platform. With the creation of Pro Clubs mode, the initiative to create a club emerges. This is how the first team that most of us represented: the United Tuga (United FIFA Pro, currently). In the colors of the United, we fought for national and international titles and helped to raise the name and reputation of the club, which continues to this day.
On May 1, 2014, we decided to leave the United Tuga and create a new team, with our own ideas, principles and style of play: the Heaven Eleven (H11) is born. The success was immediate, the H11 dominated the national competition, winning all the competitions in which they were inserted, and they competed with the biggest European names in the international competition, which highlights the presence in the final of the Champions League 2015 of the FVPA against the Germans of SuperNOVA.
It is during this period, during 2015, that the partnership with the Grow uP Esports is also born. The support of the uP has boosted the visibility and reputation of the team, so much of the success is also due to the support of the association.
After a scuffle in the middle of the pitching area, the defense managed to half clear the ball, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. However, some of us continued to play under the name of Grow uP, where the success was soon to appear again with the achievement of national and international competitions. Gradually, one by one, we all come together again, responding to the call of those who have remained and driven by the hunger of the ball we have always had.
In the summer of 2017, the great majority of the squad of 2014 was reunited, reason why we decided to grow and to change of platform, starting to the conquest of the PS4. The entry of the FPF into play and the so-called “professionalization” of eSports and Pro clubs was a determining factor in this decision.
The hopes are high and we are eager to test ourselves and find out if the quality we show on the PC will remain on this platform. My confidence is maximum, I am sure that we will be standing with the best soon. I have known and led this group since 2014, I know what we are capable of and if I did not think the quality was present I would never have decided to take this step. With the work we do every day, the motivation is just one: we’ve come to stay and make our mark on Pro Clubs on PS4. “
