Omaken Sports will perform under Heroic tag in PUBG
Norwegian organization Omaken Sports, founded in 2020, bought Danish esports club Heroic. From now on, all squads from both organizations, including Omaken Sports' PUBG team, will play under the Heroic name tag.
Omaken Sports were founded in 2020 by Joachim “Noobwork” Haraldsen and has recently raised €15M for the acquisition and development of Heroic and Omaken, with the vision of creating a Nordic powerhouse of esports.
Both Omaken Sports and Heroic will now be represented as Heroic in tournaments, as the organizations are merging. Heroic will be the brand that the CS:GO roster as well as upcoming expansions will operate under.
Omaken Sports opened a division on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds last February, signing the Zoekt een Naam lineup featuring former Team Liquid, Team SoloMid and FaZe Clan player Jere "Jembty" Kauppinen. The team finished in the top 8 on PCS 3, sixth on PCS 2, and fourth on PCS 1. For the year, the team won approximately $65,000 in prize money. Omaken Sports was not invited to the PGI.S in South Korea.
