valde transferred to unnamed team

Today North transfers Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså to a yet unnamed team.

The 24-year-old has been a part of North since August 2017. North CEO Christopher Håkonsson appreciates valde for his effort at North.

Håkonsson, since he joined the organization in October 2019, has worked methodically together with the rest of the new leadership on analyzing all parts of the organization and is preparing for a revamp of the company in 2020.

- North has a lot of untapped potential. With a new and clear strategy, which we're working hard on finalizing at the moment, both in the sporting and in the rest of the organization, I believe that we'll develop strongly in 2020, says Christopher Håkonsson.

- We've got some super exciting announcements in the pipeline that we're looking forward to show the world, says Christopher Håkonsson.

The next task for North is ESL Pro League Finals in Odense, where the team will face Team Liquid in the first match on Tuesday, December 3rd, 15.45 CET.

Statement from valde:

Hey guys. As you all might already know, the time has come for me to try something new and go down a different path in my career. I could feel within myself that it is the right decision, and it is always with mixed feelings leaving something behind that has been a huge part of your life for more than two years now. I got to play 35 tournaments and lift four trophies during my time in North, and all of them played a role in creating some of the most memorable moments I have in my life.
