RFRSH agrees to sell Astralis

RFRSH Entertainment has reached an agreement to sell its competitive branch, which includes Astralis, for an undisclosed fee, it has been revealed.

The deal will be completed next week and will see both Astralis and Origen, RFRSH's League of Legends squad, move over to 'Astralis Group ApS', a newly-formed company that includes Danish sports and business people among its owners.

According to TV 2 SPORT, the deal is worth in the region of 10-15 million euros (11.1-16.6 million dollars).

Astralis and Origen will split from RFRSH

Nikolaj Nyholm will resign as RFRSH Entertainment CEO to assume the same position in the Astralis Group, with RFRSH co-founder Jakob Lund Kristensen joining him in the project along with Director of Sports, Kasper Hvidt, and VP of Communications & Brand, Steen Laursen, who will also quit RFRSH.

"I am really proud of what we have achieved, but at some point we had to make a choice, and my heart is close to Astralis and Origen," Mr. Nyholm told dr.dk.

"We also do this in order to separate ownership between RFRSH and the teams."

The news comes less than three weeks after it was revealed that Astralis would soon operate independently from RFRSH Entertainment, which will focus on the BLAST Pro Series tournaments and other BLAST properties.

In an internal email subsequently leaked by Dexerto, the RFRSH chief admitted that the public criticism over the ties between Astralis and the company had affected the team, who were knocked off the top of the world rankings by Liquid on June 3 after 406 days sitting at No.1. In that email, it was also revealed that RFRSH is looking into the possibility of creating its own league in 2020.

Astralis are third in the rankings ahead of the StarLadder Major, where they will look to defend their title from IEM Katowice - one of just two LAN tournaments that they have won since the start of the year.

The announcement comes on the same day as RFRSH released its financial results for 2018, showing 48 million DKK (7.12 million dollars) in losses. The Danish company has three more regular BLAST Pro Series stops planned for 2019 (in Moscow, Copenhagen and in an as-yet undisclosed city) in addition to the Global Final event, where $500,000 will be on offer.

"it was also revealed that RFRSH is looking into the possibility of creating its own league in 2020." its obvious they wanted exclusivity all the time) blast events until csgo dies
2019-07-31 20:59
Exlusivity already exists with ESL Pro League (not counting ECS because is shit) and it's dying (they were forced to change the system) so another T1 league could be okay if they do something new.

its not exclusive. teams can still play in other events. look up PEA league attempt, ESL WESA drama in the past. example: dotesports.com/counter-strike/news/count.. blast was messing around with schedules already near other events. just a step closer to the old cancer that was beaten already
2019-07-31 22:05
The csgo schedule is SO busy. I don't think is blast fault. That's what happens when there is no regulation

Socialist spotted! Bla bla bla regulation... Dude, regulation of amount of matches/events in a league of csgo? Are you sure? It just prove that we need more teams. Who said we are having too much events? The top 10 teams, the teams that are in all the events every month. The scene needs to evolve even more, more events represents more chances to small teams/players breakthrough into a better teams, an so on. A top team/player that complains about the less events is just not helping the scene evolution and to reveal new players or teams.

You clearly have no idea what an exclusivity league actually is.

Of course I do. But playing the demagogic card saying that "they want the exclusivity of making cs tournaments!11!1!" when we all know that that is never gonna happen is a bit unfair.

I mean if they remove ownership of astralis and actually make a good format and focus on their tournament and not make it a franchised league where only invited teams can attend, it could be a great league.

I just think it's all optics and there is still some conflict of interest. I mean even if they are two different entities the people in charge still have ties. I know people will say it's just business and I'm being too cynical but I still have a feeling this "new" Astralis will sign favorable deals with RFRSH in regards to blast or other tournaments.

2019-08-01 03:59
I'm not saying you're incorrect, but i'm actually pretty sure they WANT to split up. It's hurting both their brands that they're affiliated, which means losses for both parties. I havent looked into their economics, but a loss of 7,12 million dollars for 2018 seems like a lot for a company in this business. I'd really like to see their revenue

RFRSH owns the team and brand "Astralis". They dont want it anymore, so they sell the team to the newly formed Astralis Group (that consists of the current CEO of RFRSH and other investors)

Smart from RFRSH, they know that Astralis is on a downfall, so they try to make the most of it
2019-07-31 22:19
Its not smart to sell on a downfall tho, they should have sold them a year ago
2019-07-31 22:25
If they sold them a year ago they wouldn't capitalise on Astralis being top 1 team in a world, imagine all the jersey sold during that time. They were like celebrities in Denmark
2019-07-31 22:27
They always was celebrities in denmark, denmark never had shit in csgo. They are selling way too late to be called smart.
2019-07-31 22:28
Dude, all the staff and executives are transferring to Astralis. The title is misleading. They are selling assets to their own new company focused around the team and getting rid of the RFRSH/Blast brand.
2019-07-31 22:48
why not fix blast instead of leaving it to the wind. just get rid of your stupid format and make it more like a real esport event. it could be very popular. Astralis on the hand has no guarantee of ever coming back. look at fnatic, look at sk/mibr, look at VP .... I am not saying astralis is VP but a lot of teams come and go. and there are no guarantees here

So basically nothing has changed. RFRSH some how still owns Astralis. They just moved them to a separate entity. Almost reminds me of the Echo Fox issue but at least the owner isn't a racist.

They have exclusive but I didnt see Astralis playing in some Blast pro series. They need to come back to play all tournaments again.
2019-08-01 03:33
they're too afraid to be a shame and lost their paychecks and audi luxury cars
2019-08-02 04:14
So they all publicly quit but privately still own and run the company they "split from"?

There seems to be a lot of confusion in this thread regarding the sale - Astralis is not for sale anymore as they have already been sold to a range of danish business men and sports stars. The transaction is scheduled for next week. They will remain Astralis, won't disband and will operate under a new organisation called Astralis Group. RFRSH CEO and sports director is leaving RFRSH to manage Astralis Group along with other key personel associated with the team. Sry boys, no disband, no 100 thieves, no TSM, just Astralis.
