Danish esports organization Atralis was originally founded in 2016 and had quickly made a name for itself among fans around the globe through top-tier esports performances. Between 2017 and 2021, Astralis' CS:GO teams formed an era of domination, taking home 4 major titles and triumphing almost every event they attended - ranking the team global #1 rank for the better part of 2018-2019. Apart from their notorious flagship roster, Astralis also maintains rosters in a variety of other game titles: League of Legends, Rainbow Six: Siege, FIFA and Fortnite.The steady growth of the organization over the recent years is not only visible in their sporting successes and diversification of rosters, but even more so in the long-term partnerships the organization was able to build: Bybit, Logitech G, Omen by HP or hummel, to name a few. With currently 15 brand-partners under its belt, the organization faces a major task with providing all partners with satisfactory results.

Recently, the team has hit the news with their roster shuffle and return of superstar and fan favorite Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz.
