Ninjas in Pyjamas is a Swedish esports organization which was founded in 2000. The team competed in Counter-Strike until their dissolution in 2007. In 2012, the team returned with a now heavily renowned Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad and have branched out in a large variety of games.

Ninjas in Pyjamas entered Valorant in the closed beta with the signing of their former European Paladins World Championship winning roster. The former Paladins roster consisted of Erik "Bird" Sjösten, Malkolm "bonkar" Rench, Leander "Tenner" Aspestrand, Aleks "Alex" Suchev and Dylan "DiGeDoG" Chainski, whom reigns from Australia. During the transition, Bird transitioned into a coaching role and signed on as the team's coach. Roster shortly fell apart after a total of two months.
