AS Monaco have announced that they have released their whole roster, as Tigreee, Extra and EyeIgnite, alongside coach S1mon, all become free agents. 

This follows on from their previous announcement that Tigree and S1mon have expressed their desire to start their next adventure elsewhere with Extra and EyeIgnite staying on for the Spring Series. with the RLSS concluding over two weeks ago, Extra and EyeIgnite have followed suit, with all four players' contracts not being renewed.

In a statement on their official website, manager Loic Patages said: "The current cycle of our Rocket League team has now come to an end, with the end of the Spring Series, the last competition in which the team was representing us. It's time to methodically prepare for the next season and study the opportunities available to us in order to come back to the top with a team most in line with the Club's project."

The future of the players have yet to be confirmed, however, Tigreee has already been trying out with Al0t and Mognus for Sauce in  JohnnyBoi_i’s Fusion event, but after failing to qualify, the move has been halted.

Extra had previously been heavily linked with a move to Karen alongside the Ex-TSM roster but has most recently been trying out with BDS in preparation for their first season in RLCS.

Reflecting on his time at AS Monaco, Extra said in the statement "First of all, I would like to thank the entire AS Monaco Esports team for all they have done for us. For my first contract as a professional player, I was very well managed and for that, I can never thank them enough. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end.

"I had a great time with the Rocket League team, and am certainly disappointed with our season but it is something that is to be taken as an experience and which will make us better players in the future.

"Thank you so much for all the wonderful moments spent side by side, I will never forget them."

As for the future of EyeIgnite, he will join the long list of available free agents, but with many roster changes in the EU offseason, it is likely that he could make a good fit for an RLRS or RLCS side going into Season 10
