OG suspend their academy team operations; disband roster
OG Academy's operations have been suspended, the organization announced via its official website.
All players of OG's academy team became free agents. At the same time, the junior squad's coach Christian "crisby" Schmitt will continue to work in the club as an analyst for the main team.
In 2023, OG plan to focus on the senior roster, which was the reason for the decision to suspend the academy's operations. In the future, the organization intends to return to developing young players.
OG Academy were:
Arbnor "Dementor" Pacolli
Alex "s0und" Stefan
Max "Marix" Kugener
Blagoi "oxygeN" Dimitrov
Slaven "AwaykeN" Lyubenov
A week earlier, fnatic also announced they were shutting down their academy project. The organization disbanded the roster in order to reconsider its approach to talent development.
