Amidst all the drama about the recent academy teams, there has been a development that exemplifies the situation perfectly. Spirit will have two teams in the minors, the road to the Majors.
Something unprecedented has happened that no one is talking about – both @Team__Spirit and their Academy team qualified for the CIS Minor

This literally doubles their chances of qualifying for the Major, an opportunity which is prized by many organisations.It also provides them with an opportunity to put forth their brand in a positive light. It is for this reason that ESL had decided not to allow two teams from the same organisation.
