Today, we are happy to announce that we have secured yet another P-1 Visa, this time for Kia “Surreal” Man. Kia joins a small group of Counter-Strike players to have ever received a P-1 Athletic Visa, a short list that also includes his teammate Rory “dephh” Jackson.
We are proud that once again our players have been recognized for the passion and dedication they have shown over the years. compLexity became the first organization to secure a work visa for Marcus “zet” Sundström in Counter-Strike nearly 10 years ago, and we are honored to be continuing the tradition of excellence in pro gaming.
“I’m both excited and relieved to announce that Kia “Surreal” Man now has a P1-Athletic visa that will allow him to remain in the United States to continue practicing with the team,” said Matt Dickens, Coach of compLexity Counter-Strike. “This has been a work in progress since Kia was signed to the team and we are happy to know that he will get to continue chasing his dream of playing professional Counter-Strike on TV.”
Kia “Surreal” Man had this to say:
“I’d like to thank the compLexity family for aiding me with the acquisition of my P-1 Athletic Visa. It’s exciting to know that the hard work and dedication that we put into the game is finally being recognized on the government level.”
Thank you for your continued support!
