North is a Danish esports association that supports a CS:GO team. The company was founded on the 3rd January 2017 in partnership with a Danish football club, F.C. Copenhagen and a film studio, Nordisk Film. Apart from the Counter-Strike squad, North has the intention to expand, setting their sights on Dota 2 and FIFA in the future.
North’s esports director, Jacob ‘Maelk’ Toft Andersen said “Already, we have one world-class team within Counter-Strike, but we want to expand to other games. There is a large talent pool and we see ourselves as very competitive when it comes to attracting and developing the best esports players.”
The former Dignitas players signed up with North, competing in CS: GO for the next two years. The five players have competed together winning first place at EPICENTER 2016 beating renowned squads like Fnatic, Natus Vincere, and Virtus.Pro. They have also participated in the Eleague Season 2 and ECS Season 2 placing in the eighth place. Their first appearance competing as North CSGO will be at the Eleague Major 2017.
