Virtus Pro has re-signed its legendary CS:GO team to some of the longest contracts ever seen in eSports.
Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas, Filip “NEO” Kubski, and Jaroslaw “pasha” Jarzabkowski, Janusz “snax” Pogorzelski and Pawel “byali” Bielinski have all signed new contracts that will see them stay with VP until 2020. The deal has been described as the largest in eSports history, not only in length but also in total contact value.
"I am very glad to announce that our CS:GO roster has signed a new groundbreaking agreement with the organization,” Roman Dvoryankin, Virtus.pro General Manager. “For the next four years the best team in the world will continue playing for our organization, and I am sure we going to have a lot of victories and pleasant moments as well as a lot of work to do. I would like to thank the guys for their professional approach to the negotiations. I admit they were quite difficult, but in the end we managed to reach a win-win solution. This kind of agreements are yet another step towards implementing more understandable, I would even say civilized, eSports rules. Organizations and players work together for their fans. It is especially pleasant to us that the legendary players from the well-known "Golden Five" and their younger partners will keep playing for Virtus.pro until the end of 2020."
