Representatives of the team Team Spirit have announced that the organization has signed the academy roster. Team Spirit Academy will be represented by players from the team 1337.
Spirit has become the next to sign the second roster, consisted of young CS:GO players. Such organizations as Fnatic, North, Counter Logic Gaming and others had done this before Team Spirit.
The team, known for now as Team Spirit Academy, has started to become popular, playing in such small tournaments as Hellcase and Binary Cups.
One of the goals of Team Spirit Academy is the participation in CIS Minor. However, the organization has decided not to set impossible goals and will make small but confident steps to the top of the eSports Olymp.
Ruslan Buhryn, Team Spirit manager:
«The roster consists of talented players and experienced coach. An important aspect for us is to unlock the potential of each player, which is why we are actively working on developing personal skills and improving the understanding of the game. Recently we got invited to the CIS Minor qualifier, and right now we are preparing for the tournament. The initial goal for us is to achieve a successful performance at the regional minor tournament and get to the main qualifiers for the PGL Major Krakow.»
Nikita Chukalin, Team Spirit COO:
«It’s very difficult to enter the pro-scene at the moment, not every talented young man can afford to choose a game instead of education or a job. Such projects as Team Spirit Academy help the whole scene to grow, we get the "young blood" and perspective, and players get a solid ground under their feet – now they don’t have to worry about trivia and are able to concentrate on the game. We have big plans working with young players, which go far beyond the current form of the academy. We will build our common future!»
