On Saturday, December 30, Sashi Esports announced the signing of Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen and Frederik "Fessor" Sørensen, who join the team to fill the gaps left behind by recent departures. As confirmed, Fessor joined the tram on a permanent basis, whereas niko joined Sashi on a loan.

Fessor and niko come to Sashi Esports to replace two benched players Allan "Speedy" Sørensen and Mathias "PR1mE" Carlsen. With Speedy and PR1mE benched, Sashi has lost the core, which recently made noise at Ligaen Season 24, claiming the team's third tournament of 2023.

Fessor joins Sashi as a benched player on Preasy Esports, who he joined in June 2023 but was removed from the main lineup a month later following the team's disappointing fifth-eighth-place finish at Preasy Summer Cup 2023.

Niko, on the other side, joins Preasy from 00 Nation, who he joined in August 2023, but got benched at the end of November.

Of the two new signings, niko is more experienced, having been active in the Counter-Strike scene since August 2015. Over his career, niko has played for numerous high-profile teams, including Heroic, OpTic Gaming, North, and OG, before he left for 00 Nation.

With the addition of two players, Sashi will hope they can find some more stability after a turmbulent year, which saw the Danish CS squad field 18 different players. However, while adding niko and Fessor are big changes, Sashi have more news to announce at the start of 2024.

"Our last missing piece is already in place, and we are excited to be able to share more news in the beginning of the new year. We look forward to kicking off the 2024 in style with our new additions to the team."

The announcement suggests that Sashi is finalising the roster rebuild process by adding one more player in a bid to find more success than in 2023, which saw Sashi win only two C-Tier tournaments.

With the two signings, Sashi Esports' Counter-Strike roster includes:

  • Mikkel "n1Xen" Borlund
  • Martin "nut nut" Holm Vestergaard
  • Frederik "Fessor" Sørensen
  • Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen
  • Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen – coach
