Some of the best sports teams in history worked around a so-called “Big Three”. This is especially true in the NBA, where the Miami Heat, the San Antonio Spurs and the Chicago Bulls have all reached their peak through three key players.

Today, OG is following the same line for its CS:GO team and is proud to announce the renewal of the contracts of Aleksib, valde and mantuu until the end of 2022.

This trio, present since the team was born, lived and overcame this challenging 2020 year with a groundbreaking regularity at the highest level though every single season. They represent today the base of the legacy that we want to continue building.

The genesis of a new team starts with solid foundations. It was therefore essential for us to once again honor the trust we have in these three world-class players who won our hearts and the fan’s in a matter of seconds. There is no doubt that the progress made in the past year will fructify in the months to come and we look forward to bringing our first trophies back to the Sunflower house.

This contract renewal also marks a continued commitment to CS:GO. Its ecosystem has brilliantly adapted to the global crisis by providing more thrilling games and more excitement for the audience than ever before.

“I’m happy to announce that I’ll be extending my contract with OG until the end of 2022. I believe that the current project has all the right pieces to reach new heights, and it’s up to us to put in the work and show it. Thanks for believing in us #DreamOG”
Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen

“I have enjoyed every second of my time here in OG and I think it’s only a natural step for me that I have chosen to stay. I think the player treatment in OG is above anything I’ve personally tried before and I really enjoy working with likeminded people who are trying to achieve greatness. I want to thank Johan, Ceb, Charlie and all the other people who puts an effort into making you feel like you’re a part of something bigger and of course all the OG fans who has been with us from day 1”
Valdemar “valde” Vangså

“It is with great pleasure that I am announcing my contract renewal until the end of 2022 with OG. I am happy to continue working with my teammates with the amazing support from the organisation and the fans. I believe this year we will showcase our new potential and win some trophies #DreamOG”
Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski

“First off, I want to thank Seb who put together an amazing roster back in the end of 2019. Even in a game that isn’t his, he was able to identify great individuals and competitors, and greeted us with 5 amazing profiles to initiate OG CS:GO.
It is now with great pride and happiness that we prolong until the end of 2022 with Aleksi, Valdemar and Mateusz as the core of the project. The three of them have shown all along the way their commitment to the game and the competition, but also to the OG values and to their teammates. High potential, stability, trust, friendship, fun.. We are convinced that all the elements are gathered to keep growing towards our goal: the top of the Counter-Strike Scene. Dream OG!”
Charlie Debs, COO of OG esports

We are proud and honored to have the loyalty and determination of our players. With the full CS:GO roster announced last week, the pew pew boys are now ready to compete, climb back the rankings and continue their quest for trophies. Better armed than ever before!
