Denmark – a global superpower in Counter-strike

Esport is growing heavily, both in Denmark and internationally, especially the game Counter-Strike, which is played heavily. In fact, Denmark is the country in the world with the most professional Counter-Strike players per. inhabitants in the absolute world elite (Top 30 in the world), including current full-time professional teams Astralis, North and Heroic. Denmark has been fighting for honor and glory in Counter-Strike against Sweden over the last two decades, where the matches, with the high number of professionals in the countries, are always exciting to watch.

“We are incredibly happy, and at the same time very proud to be among such a strong field of international top teams. Now we’re soon there where things are getting fun. However, it will be even harder to maintain our current ranking than it has been to achieve it. We must continue to work as focused and hard as before and be strong when we experience adversity. Though if we fall out of the top 30, it will only be a matter of time before we come back again. “Says Kenneth Goldy.
