The Dignitas roster of 2016 has been picked up by Copenhagen F.C. The Football organisation has reported signed 3-5 year contracts with the team rosters. This heralds a new change in the way contracts are signed in eSports. Traditionally contracts used to last 1 year. The only exception was Virtus Pro which signed multi year contracts with their Polish roster. Team North, which is the name of the team owned by Copenhagen F.C. will be a strong contender in the upcoming Major.
The jerseys of Team North were recently revealed. Team North are dressed in White colors. They sport their Team Logo along with their sponsor logo. Adidas will be the primary sponsor for Team North.

One of the advantages of having traditional sports organisation coming into eSports is the influx of new sponsors and investors that they bring along with them.
In addition to the influx of monetary sources, Copenhagen F.C. will also be sporting a huge support staff for the eSports team. This includes but is not limited to psychologists, physical Trainers and a coach.
These are definitely exciting times for CSGO and we are definitely seeing a revolution of sorts in eSports.
