Over the past month or so we have been working hard to secure a UK team house for our new Counter Strike: Global Offensive lineup, to support them as they compete in both the ESEA Mountain Dew League and the 2nd season of the Gfinity Elite Series. This follows on from the success of our Rocket League house, which enabled the team to go on and win the Gfinity Elite Series season 1 championship.
The CS:GO team recently won the ESL UK & Ireland Premiership, solidifying their status as a leading UK team and the highest ranked UK team in ESEA, where we will compete amongst European giants such as Virtus Pro, Gambit and Penta. It’s extremely important to us that we continue to support the team and give them our full support, enabling them to bootcamp around the clock, as well as work closely with our partners. Without those key partners, this simply wouldn’t be possible, therefore a big thanks goes out to HyperX, OverclockersUK, noblechairs and Raven.
The full team, along with their coach Jake ‘Jakey’ Elton will be moving into the house later this week, just in time for the start of the Gfinity Elite Series season 2.
Statement from Adam ‘Adz’ Jessop:
This team house is the next logical step as we look to continue to build on our footing within the UK Counter Strike scene. We are proud that we have continued to work with our CS:GO team, and we see this as the next thing we can do as an organisation to continue their progression. Recently the team gave a great first account for themselves in the finals of the ESL premiership at EGX, and we look forward to seeing what they can do with the focus and dedication that a team house will provide. We will be looking to work closer than ever with all our partners and provide a range of rich media from both houses in the coming months.
