Known as Absolute Legends only just yesterday, the team has decided to part ways with their sponsor. A mutual decision, both parties did not renew their side of the contract for the team. What will this signal for aL?
Renaming themselves as Space, the team will continue playing under the same roster in the competitive scene for the foreseeable future, and their recent qualification for DreamHack Summer is testament to that. In addition, team manager Islam ‘Samo‘ Kenawy has decided to part ways with the Absolute Legends as well, and will opt for sticking with the team instead.
Statement by team manager Islam ‘Samo‘ Kenawy:
We part ways with aL on very good terms as we both did not wish to re-sign our contracts. However, we’d like to thank aL for the time we stayed together. I chose to stay as the manager of the team because over the past few months I’ve gotten to know all the players and they really are the best people I’ve ever worked with in eSports, it would be ridiculous of me to not continue working with them. We just recently qualified for DreamHack Summer 2013 and we are currently looking for sponsors, however if we don’t find any we will hopefully still manage a way to fund ourselves into DHS as we’d really love to participate.
From now on we’ll be called Space, and the team will continue playing together without any player changes.
