- Since we are in FC Copenhagen established the North, I have continuously been in a dialogue with Nikolaj Nyholm about the development and potential of esport at the global level. In MTG, I was responsible for the development of ’esports sports games’, with the main focus on the international turneringsudvikling in FIFA. It has been quite natural that Nicholas and I have continuously talked about the possibilities of working together, " says Anders Hørsholt.

I am convinced that we have only seen a glimpse of the full potential of esporten, when it comes to entertainment, audience, the commercial opportunities and the spread in general. The future will show that the Astralis Group is going to lift the barrier higher and higher and set new standards.

- It is in the day teams at different levels; the brands also in the organization and set-uppet about the teams, where the Astralis Group has invested significantly more in esporten, but the North is a top 10-15 team in the world, and it should command respect, " says Anders Hørsholt.
