The British based organization, fnatic has announced the release of the Academy Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team.

This ment that an organization cannot have two teams that can at a certain time compete against each other in an event.
One of the team members, Adam 'ec1s' Eccles wrote:
"Firstly, I'd like to thank Fnatic for giving us this amazing opportunity to play under their brand, the help and support that was given over the time that we spent together was great and it provided us with a lot of extra opportunities to prove ourselves even more and to get our names out there.
The staff were also very supportive of us and cheered us on in our games, which was very encouraging for us as players.
Although we developed a lot as players and people as our time in Fnatic ends, it opens a new chapter for us and we are excited for the future together!"
At the same time, Andreas 'Samuelsson' Samuelsson, fnatic CS:GO Team Director had this to say:
"It has been an honour to work with such talented up and coming players. Even though the journey in Fnatic was short, the guys made huge progress, both individually and as a team.
I know that all of them can go very far in the careers if they keep working hard with the right mindset. I wish them nothing but the best in the future!"
