Renegades make CS return with Grayhound signing
The Australian team inked a deal with Renegades ahead of the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals and will have a baptism of fire under the new organisation as they will take on Astralis in their first match in Odense on Tuesday.
Renegades had been without a CS squad since late October, when their team was transferred to 100 Thieves. During their four-year tenure with the organisation, the squad, who also hail from Australia, had attended five Counter-Strike Majors, reaching the playoffs at IEM Katowice 2019 and at the StarLadder Major.
Grayhound entered the Counter-Strike scene with the signing of the ex-Immunity roster in June of 2017, three months after the launch of the organisation. After undergoing multiple changes, the team became a regular presence on the international circuit in 2018 and attended both Majors in 2019, when they also broke into the top 20 in the rankings.
In the announcement video, Liam "malta" Schembri hinted at the team staying in Australia through a phone call skit with Renegades owner Jonas Jerebko.
The new Renegades squad look as follows:
