Curse Gaming has reached an agreement with the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) team formerly known as The Hawks, who will now become Curse.EU. The core of The Hawks have represented Finland at major International tournaments for several years in Counter-Strike 1.6.
Upon switching to CS:GO the team has already cemented itself as one of the top teams in Europe. We at Curse look forward to a long-term relationship with the team as we assist them in competing at major events.
Joona "natu" Leppanen said the following of the partnership:
"We are happy to announce that Hawks have finally landed a new home in Curse. This will give us the opportunity to truely show what we're capable of as they have shown great support right away with funding us over to THOR Open on such a short notice. This partnership gives our team the necessary support on our way up the ranks of CSGO internationally, team captain Joona "natu" Leppänen told HLTV.org.
"We hope that everyone that has been supporting us as Hawks will continue to do so in the future under the Curse-flag. You can expect a lot of streaming and other content from the players through various social media and on Curse websites.
"I would especially like to thank Ben and Mike of Curse for believing in us!"
The full Curse.EU roster includes:
- Aleksi 'allu' Jalli
- Jonas 'ScurK' Finnilä
- Timo 'reflex' Rintala
- Joona 'natu' Leppänen
- Niko 'naSu' Kovanen
