pita introduced as a new coach of Dignitas
Dignitas have announced Faruk "pita" Pita as a new coach of the team. The 30-year-old specialist replaced Halvor "vENdetta" Gulestøl, who had previously left the organization.
Before joining Dignitas, pita had coached Copenhagen Flames since August of this year. During this time, the 9-11th place at PGL Major Stockholm 2021 was the best achievement of the Danish team, after which the roster entered the top 10 of the HLTV.org rating.
pita was unable to coach Copenhagen Flames at the last Major, as he had previously received an indefinite ban from Valve for abusing the spectator mode bug.
Dignitas' new coach is best known for his work at NIP, where he was a coach from 2014 to 2015 and from 2018 to 2020. Together with the Bosnian specialist the Ninjas became the champions of ESL One Cologne Major 2014.
The first match of Dignitas with pita on board will take place at Funspark ULTI 2021 Europe Regional Series 4, which will kick off tomorrow, November 27. The Danish team will face off against Lynn Vision.
