Marty Strenczewilk, FolloweSports.com co-founder said "With the incredible growth of Counterstrike eSports over the last year it was a no brainer for us to kick off our move into team ownership with CSGO. The Canadian team SKDC has been a mainstay in the scene for quite awhile and with the addition of a key new member who previously played with Tempo Storm, our team is looking awesome."
