For the past few months BIG worked with Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninic as their interim coach, who stepped up to the challenge and helped the German organization qualify for the PGL Major and the BLAST Fall Finals in Copenhagen. BIG’s CEO thanked LEGIJA for his services in a statement.
“First of all, we would like to thank Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninic for his services as interim coach in the past months and wish him all the best on his future career path. With LEGIJA, we were able to successfully qualify for the past Major and the BLAST Fall Finals in November. From today on Niclas “enkay J” Krumhorn will take over the Head-Coach position with immediate effect. With his vast experience throughout his long career, Niclas brings a lot of expertise and knowledge to the team, which surely contribute to the team’s development in 2022 and beyond.”
DreamHack Open November will be the first challenge for the new head coach, who can look forward to a packed schedule until the end of the year.
