FolloweSports.com sign SKDC*
Team SapphireKelownaDotCom, to give SKDC their full name, have been signed by FolloweSports.com, an organisation which aims to be the 'TV Guide of eSports.'
SKDC have been a team in the North American scene that have fluctuated on the fringes of the Invite (now Pro League) level. The organisation, with actual ties to a nightclub in Kelowna, Canada, is informally known to some as a sort of "feeder" team for North American Counter-Strike, bringing lesser known talents to the higher levels.
With placings in ESEA Premier and the CEVO Professional division, SKDC's performances caught the attention of FolloweSports.com, a Rochester, NY based organisation seeking to be the 'TV Guide of eSports' (in the organisation's own words).
The roster for FolloweSports.com will appears as follows:
Marty Strenczewilk, the co-founder of FolloweSports.com released a statement on signing SKDC:
"With the incredible growth of Counterstrike eSports over the last year it was a no brainer for us to kick off our move into team ownership with CSGO. The Canadian team SKDC has been a mainstay in the scene for quite awhile and with the addition of a key new member who previously played with Tempo Storm, our team is looking awesome."
*Update: The final player on the lineup will be APE, making this an all-Canadian roster.
