HLTV.org: Espada released their line-up
The Russian organization Espada decided to disband the team before the start of the next competitive season. This is reported by HLTV.org with reference to sources close to the team.
According to the portal, Vladislav "FinigaN" Usov, Dmitry "Dima" Bandurka and Dmitry "S0tF1k" Forostianko received the status of free agents, while Abdul "degster" Hasanov and Robert "Patsi" Isyanov were put up for transfer. It is unknown at this time whether Espada has any offers on the players left behind.
Espada's current roster was formed in late 2019. Over the past year, the team has won several draw-3 tournaments and also successfully qualified for the DreamHack Open December 2020, where it only finished in 5th-6th place. Notably, the Russian team is in fifth place in the current RMR ranking, which secures a slot at the next major.
