OG announced contract extensions for Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski, Alexi "Aleksib" Virolainen and Valdemar "valde" Vangså. The new agreements with the players run until the end of 2022.
“First off, I want to thank Seb who put together an amazing roster back in the end of 2019. Even in a game that isn’t his, he was able to identify great individuals and competitors, and greeted us with 5 amazing profiles to initiate OG CS:GO.
It is now with great pride and happiness that we prolong until the end of 2022 with Aleksi, Valdemar and Mateusz as the core of the project. The three of them have shown all along the way their commitment to the game and the competition, but also to the OG values and to their teammates. High potential, stability, trust, friendship, fun.. We are convinced that all the elements are gathered to keep growing towards our goal: the top of the Counter-Strike Scene. Dream OG!”
Charlie Debs, COO of OG esports
The trio of mantuu, Aleksib and valde have represented OG since the European club debuted on the CS:GO professional scene in December 2019. Not too long ago, their teammates in the original lineup, Issa "ISSAA" Murad and Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, were replaced by Nikolai "niko" Christensen and Shahar "flameZ" Shushan.
“I’m happy to announce that I’ll be extending my contract with OG until the end of 2022. I believe that the current project has all the right pieces to reach new heights, and it’s up to us to put in the work and show it. Thanks for believing in us #DreamOG”

“I have enjoyed every second of my time here in OG and I think it’s only a natural step for me that I have chosen to stay. I think the player treatment in OG is above anything I’ve personally tried before and I really enjoy working with likeminded people who are trying to achieve greatness. I want to thank Johan, Ceb, Charlie and all the other people who puts an effort into making you feel like you’re a part of something bigger and of course all the OG fans who has been with us from day 1”
