The Danish CS:GO team formerly associated with Team Solo Mid will reportedly announce their new organisation later today.
After parting with the North American organisation in December following some internal conflict regarding their relationship with the team’s manager, the highly rated team has been playing under the placeholder name of Team Question Mark. Many industry commentators speculated this meant they would be joining the organisation called Team Secret, who house one of the best Dota 2 teams in the world.
This reportedly is not to be the case. Instead the players will be founding their own new organisation.
Sources close to the team informed Breitbart that the players and their manager, Frederik Byskov, have secured funding from private investors, also believed to be Danish, and they will be co-owners of the organisation. This will be the first example of a high profile CS:GO organisation being owned, financed, and managed by the players who represent it. With an increasing amount of venture capital being thrown at the growing eSports title, it is unlikely to be the last, especially with multiple high profile instances of organisations exploiting players for profit.
The name for the new brand will reportedly be revealed later today, and they will change their Twitter handle accordingly. Our sources also said they will follow up the announcement with a Reddit AMA to garner some attention for the new project.
Breitbart have reached out to the management of the team, who declined to comment on the story.
