Joining the likes of Luffy, Bonchan, Daigo Umehara, and Snake Eyez, Adel “Big Bird” Anouche is the latest Street Fighter V player to be signed to Red Bull’s Athlete program. One of the UAE’s top players, Big Bird had a fantastic 2017, placing the top 8 of events like EGX, DreamHack Summer, Tower of Pride, and Esports Festival Hong Kong, along with making it to Capcom Cup 2017.
Very happy to announce that I'm officially a Red Bull Athlete! I've been dreaming about this for so long, it's a dream come true!
Special thanks to @NasrEsports for getting me back on my feet after a horrible 2016! Here's to an exciting year working with two amazing partners! pic.twitter.com/4GCuzCSbBC

Combined with his pre-existing sponsorship by Nasr Esports, this Red Bull partnership puts Big Bird in a fantastic starting position to make 2018 his best year yet. With Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on the horizon and potentially some buffs for his hot-headed main Ken, expect to see Big Bird lighting up the stage at more international tournaments.
