GODSENT continue to break new grounds in the Swedish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community.
Now they are set to create one of the scene’s first academy teams.
– The kids that truly want to go all in for professionell gaming should be able to turn to the right people and get help in reaching their dreams, Alexander ”rdl” Redl tells Aftonbladet Esport.

Recruiting new and young talents for a secondary, so called academy team, have been popular in games such as Starcraft 2 and League of Legends. The phenomenon have however not taken foothold in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community.

Swedish GODSENT, one of the first CS:GO clubs founded by it’s own players, are looking to change the game. On Wednesday they announced that they are about to form their first junior squad and call out for interested youngsters to apply.
– Sweden have always delivered top results in CS:GO. We initiated this project in order to ensure that our country will continue to be a super power in Counter-Strike and esports, says GODSENTs coach, Alexander ”rdl” Redl, to Aftonbladet Esport

He compares their project with junior teams in other more traditional sports, such as hockey and football.
– In the very same way, we want the kids to have a home where they can be educated by players and profiles who have already been in the scene for years. Anyone that have played on a high level knows the sheer dedication required to reach the top. The kids that truly want to go all in for professionell gaming should be able to turn to the right people and get help in reaching their dreams.
