Team Solo-Mid's announcement of a second Valorant squad might have been ruined due to an accidental leak, as users were quick to notice a video posted on a public Discord server, subsequently shared on the Competitive Valorant subreddit, which seemingly confirmed the upcoming TSM female Valorant squad.
The video, which has since been deleted, showcased TSM's brand-new female roster, one that includes former CS:GO pros Catherine "CAth" Leroux and Mirna "athxna" Noureldin. Here's the full roster:
- Catherine "CAth" Leroux
- Mirna "athxna" Noureldin
- Katherine "Lunarkats" So
- Emily "mleQT"
Athxna recently tweeted out this past 14th March that they were competing in the Valorant Vanguard Championship Series, with all players teasing an announcement soon based on their Twitter bios, as none are listed as Free Agents, but as players for an unknown organization yet to be revealed.

If the rumours are to be confirmed, this would mark the second all-female roster by an important North American organization in Valorant following the creation of Cloud9 Blue, coming at a time when Riot Games just announced the Valorant Game Changers circuit, a new series of events that serves for "women and other marginalised genders" to showcase their abilities.
Despite TSM missing out on the VCT Stage 1 Masters, investing in a new squad speaks highly of the org's commitment to the scene and should make fans excited for what's to come.
