Sweden -- Astralis finds sponsorship in Swedish organization, Hardwire.
Since the departure of Tino "tihOp" Puumala and the addition of Atte "VIDI" Hyväkkä, astralis has done little to improve their standing in international Counter Strike scene since they lack the funds to travel internationally.
Today they team up with Hardwire, a team best known for its sponsorship of mix teams in events like IOF DreamHack Winter, and other Swedish based LAN events.
Max "ruuit" Aspe told HLTV.org
that he was “very happy to be back in the business in a team with sponsors who can support us” as well as that “I'm very very excited to be part of this and hoping to take some championships for our new name."
The first event they will attend will be Spanish GameGune taking place 23-25th of July in Bilbao, Spain.
Hardwire's new CS team is:
Juuso "contE" Sajakoski
Samu "plastE" Aalto
Max "ruuit" Aspe
Jirka "jigetuS" Ryhti
Atte "VIDI" Hyväkkä
