YMCA Esports is an organization hailing from Tampere, Finland priding themselves in developing Finnish esports and has been a force in the field since being established, also receiving recognition in the Häme area sports gala 2019 as an actor of a new era. Previously, YMCA has been affiliated with GHETTO FIREBIRDS in the NHL scene, but the two parties went separate ways in March. Now YMCA is ready to make another push with the newly signed roster of Unlucky Boys HC. The team will continue under the name YMCA Esports.
"I'm extremely excited about our cooperation with YMCA. The organisation has seemed really professional right from the get go and our ambitions seemed to line up nicely. I believe that this partnership will help us take that last step that we've been longing for. We're going to go into the upcoming FCL and ECL seasons with the goal to win, and we're ready to compete whenever the puck drops." - Captain Antti @Anhel Kuru about the future with YMCA Esports
Kuru has captained the team since Unlucky Boys was first founded in ECL 4. The team started their journey in ECL Pro, but quickly claimed a spot at the top level and hasn't let up since. Last season was close to being their first showing in the semifinals, as the quarterfinals against hREDS ended in a heartbreaking game seven loss that none of the UB players will want to look back on. Determined to take the last step, the team is pushing forward with the same roster that worked for them in ECL 10.
