Head of Esports at OG Esports, Mike Schwartz stated the following:

- Talent development has always been a key focus for me in any project – not only in working to build up the existing talent on the main roster, but creating a system that can grow talent underneath.

- We’ve known there has always been parallels in traditional sport development which have been adapted across various league structures, and now CS has been seeing more talent come through this system. It is an exciting time for the next generation of players, and we hope to be a destination for them, Schwartz said in a statement.
