Astralis Sign Their First Ever Academy Teams

Astralis Sign Their First Ever Academy Teams

Astralis has had one of the most turbulent years out of any organisation. Having originally expanded their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) roster that has seen years of dominance, their plans were cut short due to a number of factors. Now, with Lukas "gla1ve" Egholm Rossander and Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth returning to the starting roster, Astralis look to be back on course and recently took home the DreamHack Masters Winter 2020: Europe title.

Over in League of Legends, the organisation has also started a new chapter, rebranding their Origen roster to suit the brand and drafting in some upcoming European talent such as Jesper "Jeskla" Klarin Strömberg from Mousesports and former World Championship runner-up Hampus "promisq" Mikael Abrahamsson. 

Heading into the new year, Astralis has announced two brand-new academy sides for both CS:GO and League of Legends, in their bid to have a conveyor belt of rising talent in both games. 

Astralis CS:GO Academy Roster

  • In-Game Leader: Mathias “R0nic” Pinholt
  • AWP: Andreas “void” Dietrichsen
  • Rifler: Rasmus “zyph0n” Nordfoss
  • Rifler: Mads “vester” Vestergaard
  • Rifler: Victor “vigg0” Bisgaard
  • Head of Talent/head coach: Dennis ”VNG” Vang

Mikkel “MistR” Thomsen, another rifler, will join the academy project in the Summer of 2021 too.

League of Legends Academy Roster

  • TOP: Carl ”Carlsen” Carlsen
  • JUNGLE: Mikkel “Mixsi” Bay-Schmidt
  • MID: Mikkel “Rylle” Rylander Christiansen
  • ADC: Kasper ”Kadaver” Müller Nielsen
  • SUPPORT: Benjamin ”RotteBengi” Mahler Jørgensen
  • Head Coach : Mikkel Donby
  • Second Coach : Anders Schultz

Kasper Hvidt, Director of Sports at Astralis Group stated: "Our coaching team has been working with a list of prospects but ever since we first revealed our plans, we’ve literally had hundreds of inquiries from interested players and parents. It’s been fantastic to experience the curiosity and I believe we could put together 5-6 teams of skilled young talent.

"Just like with the A-teams, we have patience, though, and the goal is not to win everything from the get-go but to gradually improve as an organisation, team and individual players."

It's set to be a bright future for Astralis.
