Team Dignitas has announced that it is getting back into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive by acquiring its own womens team. This team was originally run by Selfless Gaming.
The team will make its debut at the 2017 Intel Challenge women’s CS:GO tournament in Katowice. It will compete against a number of other women’s CS teams.
The roster is expected to remain the same for Team Dignitas as it was for Selfless. Heather “sapphiRe” Garozzo, a former professional competitor, will continue to work as the team’s manager.
This marks the first time that Team Dignitas has had an all-female team in the ten-plus year history of the organization. The team itself, which was once called Team Karma, has been competing in many womens tournaments and even some co-ed events around the world. It finished in second in a CS tournament at the Esports World Convention in 2016.
Team Dignitas is aiming to keep on growing with more teams in the future. The organization has reached a few ties with professional sports teams including the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils. There is also a goal to establish a CS that is completely based out of North America although there is no timetable for when that will come about.
Even with this, Team Dignitas has still had to shed some of its old relations. It recently parted with its Danish CS team that eventually went to north. Team Dignitas continues to state that it is looking to get into a variety of esports events with only the best available teams around.
