SKADE have announced the signing of a contract with former c0ntact player Georgi "SHiPZ" Grigorov, which he represented in the last official matches as standing. He has taken the permanent place of Theodore "SPELLAN" Nikolov, who has left the team a month ago.

“I am super happy that we were able to find a deal that both sides were happy with and we can finally announce SHiPZ as an official squad member. I am also super thrilled to have the rest of the squad renew their contracts with us. It has been a great ride so far and the time to come holds great things for these young guys.” – CEO, Kim-Erik Aanes

At the same time, SKADE have prolonged the contracts of its current lineup. The refreshed lineup plans to return to the top-30 world ranking in the next six months.

SHiPZ has been a free agent since mid-January of this year. Prior to that, the 20-year-old Bulgarian spent 4.5 months on the reserve of North American club c0ntact, which decided during the winter offseason to disband the roster in order to assemble a whole new lineup of five players.

“I’m very excited to join SKADE and my motivation is at a high. I know all these players already and I know how good they are. I really believe we have everything we need to become a top team and we have set a goal of becoming a top #30 team in the next 6 months.” – Georgi “SHiPZ” Grigorov

  •  Alex “Rainwaker” Petrov
  •  Denislav “dennyslaw” Dimitrov
  •  Blagoi “Oxygen” Dimitrov
  •  Viktor “Duplicate” Mitev
  •  Georgi “SHiPZ” Grigorov
