Following news that Team Dignitas would not be keeping the same roster for CS:GO, it look as if F.C. Copenhagen are set to pick up the roster as they enter esports.
As previously reported, Dignitas dropping their roster came as a shock to most of the community considering the vast success the roster has had. A comment from the Dignitas CEO Michael “ODEE” O’Dell to Dom Sacco of Esports News UK read as follows:
“We intend to headquarter our CSGO squad in North America so that they may have access to the best training, development, and health and wellness resources we can provide.” (Source)
Meanwhile, according to reports from Dot Esports the Danish CS:GO roster look to be signing locally to the country’s largest football club. It is also rumoured that Copenhagen’s investment in esports won’t stop there – with FIFA and Dota 2 also on their radar.
Esports Insider says: With Team Imperial a full Danish Dota 2 roster not yet unveiling their sponsor – maybe we’re going to see a big entry with two big esports rosters from F.C. Copenhagen. With more than just FIFA on the agenda, it’s clear that – should these plans come to fruition – the club are going big on esports.
