The Danish esports organization OG has announced the arrival of Casper “ruggah” Due as the head coach of their CS:GO division, with the team preparing to take part in the upcoming ICE Challenge 2020, where they are scheduled to go up against ENCE in their opening match on 1st February.
OG CS:GO was announced about two months back on 4th December and since then the team has been operating without a coach, going on to place 3rd - 4th at the cs_summit 5, followed by a failed attempt to make their way through the European Open Qualifiers for IEM Katowice 2020.
Ruggah, a former Danish CS:GO player has been a part of the professional circuit for nearly 12 years now. He started coaching back in 2016 with Team Dignitas and has since gone on to coach multiple big organizations like North, OpTic Gaming, OpTic, and now OG.
In a Tweet, Ruggah went on to say, “The cat is out of the bag. I'm the new coach for the OG CS:GO team. Super excited to get the chance to work with these talented players in such a legendary brand. So far I've been nothing but impressed with everything from the teams, organization, staff, and partners.”
