Gen.G and Bumble Announce Search for All-Women VALORANT Team

Bumble, the women-first social networking app, and global esports organization, Gen.G, today announced the search for an all-women VALORANT team - expanding their existing 'Team Bumble' partnership. Initially launched in 2019, Gen.G Empowered by Bumble (Team Bumble) established the creation of the first-ever all-women professional Fortnite team and brought the two brands together to empower women in the gaming community.

Gen.G and Bumble will continue with a shared mission to create and champion a safer environment for women online in which all esports athletes can succeed and connect with one another. The search for the new team will integrate Madison "Maddiesuun" Man, who is a key player on the Team Bumble Fortnite team and has been flexing her skills into VALORANT.

"It's cool to see that the gaming scene has evolved for women since we launched Team Bumble," said Madison "Maddiesuun" Mann with Gen.G. "As we discover new talent, we're pushing towards an environment where women gamers are not treated as separate but are given the full opportunity to scrim and develop their skills. I'm excited to have the opportunity to mentor and create with the next wave of Team Bumble pros."

Madison will support Gen.G's expansive search for the best women gamers to join the pro team as well as creators, casters and mentors to be part of the Tea
