F.C. Copenhagen Signs Former Dignitas CS:GO Roster

By   /   Dec 21, 2016

F.C. Copenhagen, the most successful club in the history of Danish football, has decided to sign the former CS:GO squad of Team Dignitas under its banner.

According to Dot Esports, sources close to the matter have confirmed that the roster comprising Rene “cajunb” Borg, Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke, Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen, Ruben “rubino” Villarroel, Emil “Magisk” Reif, and head coach Casper “Ruggah” Due will be donning the FCK jerseys in the competitive CS:GO circuits of 2017.

A press release was also issued today that announces the club’s foray into the world of esports. The successful Danish organization is interested in investing millions on an annual basis and is fielding teams for Dota 2 and FIFA as well. The move makes F.C. Copenhagen the first European Football club to accept and invest in CS:GO esports.

Yesterday, Dignitas made the surprising announcement of releasing its entire Counter-Strike: Global Offensive division. According to reports, the decision to part ways was mutual but was initiated by the squad itself.

The esports organization was recently acquired by NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers. It’s widely assumed that the players were being moved to North America in order to take advantage of 76ers’ resources. As such the players might have refused because of having to leaving their homes and families.

Coach Ruggah did hint to a January announcement. That’s when their contracts with Dignitas officially expire. While FCK has made an announcement to enter esports, the official word on signing the former Dignitas players should arrive next month.

Ruggah and his band of players have confirmed to be playing the 2016 World Electronic Sports Games finals and the ELeague Major in January. The skilled group of talented individuals won Epicenter 2016 in Moscow in October and then qualified for the upcoming Major. They have been registering impressive results on the board as of late. Hopefully, they’ll be able to carry this momentum into 2017 under the banner of F.C. Copenhagen.
