KRC Genk’s esports division is, next to FIFA and League of Legends, also active in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). Soon the CS:GO team will start for the second consecutive season in the Elite Series: Counter-Strike (ESCS), one of the most important Benelux competitions. Here, KRC Genk Esports managed to achieve a great third place. The goal this season: to do better than that third place. To achieve that, KRC Genk Esports has unveiled a new CS:GO team with three new players and one new shirt sponsor: GGPoker.

After weeks of thorough scouting, the result is a squad composed of a mix of experienced and talented Benelux players. Kik “Fishie” Voortman and Rune “Tewyy” Steusel, two Dutchmen, signed for an extended stay and are surrounded by three up-and-coming talents. Giovanni “Wumbo” Türkeli, also a Dutchman, will make life difficult for opponents with the AWP (sniper). Two very young Belgian players will also join the team: Kyan “AyeZs” Blockx, known for his great communication skills and smart decision making, and Roman “n0te” Hamze, known for his sharp aim and merciless entry fragging.
