As we welcome the new line-up, we embark on this new chapter filled with great excitement. First and foremost, we welcome back a veteran of our team. Rasmus “raalz” Steensborg, who had stepped down from Sprout’s active roster in late 2022 who is now reunited with his former coach Danny “BERRY” Krüger and reinforces remaining player Rasmus “Zyphon” Nordfoss. Having previously played at Sprout as the IGL, his experience and his contagious motivation make him an invaluable asset. We are thrilled to have Rasmus rejoin the squad in hopes to carry forward previous achievements. Against the expectations, Rasmus “raalz” Steensborg will not return as IGL this time, instead we have young gun Daniil “alpha” Demin who was brought on board in May of this year after Sprout parted ways with Aaron “AZR” Ward. Despite his tender age, he has shown to be a versatile player with a keen eye for strategy, making the right calls and approaching his role with great confidence. Alongside Daniil, we have the 21 years old talent Olle “spooke” Grundström and AWPer Ihor “w0nderful” Zhdanov to complete the roster. In 2022, we experienced Ihor’s capability at the IEM Rio Major first hand, falling short 0-2 in a Bo3, which eventually led to our elimination. On the contrary “w0nderful” proceeded to shine at the tournament, averaging a 1.20 HLTV ranking across the 10 maps played and with that rank himself at the very top. Ihor brings a wealth of international experience, now following in Adrian “XELLOW” Guță footsteps whom we recently said goodbye to.
While we have assembled a talented and seasoned group of players who possess a blend of experience, skill, and hunger for success. Change presents an opportunity for growth, and with these new additions, we are optimistic about the future of our CS:GO team. That being said, not only our main roster shall be a force to be reckoned with, but the academy team will play an integral role in our course too.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our fans, sponsors, and supporters for their unwavering support throughout these transitions and turbulent times. With their ongoing encouragement, we hold a strong belief that our team will fight our way back to the top and bring pride to all those who have stood by us.
Together, we look forward to a future brimming with success, as well as countless memorable and joyful moments.
