Team Orbit have announced the signing of a new CS:GO team featuring Benelux talent.
The Benelux scene has not had a team capable of challenging in Europe for almost two years now, which has forced the region's top players to look abroad for opportunities to compete on a top level.
After turning to the UK scene to find regular action in the last few months, Mike "mikeS" Tuns, Kaj "kajsk1ng" van Staalduinen andJoey "CRUC1AL" Steusel, have now decided to go back to their roots and build a new Benelux team together with two well-known Belgian players, Tom "STRYKER" Colyn and Fréderic "Monu" Dewever.

The team will be flying the colours of Orbit, who had parted ways with their Swedish CS:GO squad earlier in the week.
"We feel this team has potential to go far," a statement from Orbit read.
"The line up has a mixture of both young, talented players as well as experienced veterans, and we are looking forward to working with them."
Team Orbit's CS:GO division consists of:
Mike "mikeS" Tuns
Joey "CRUC1AL" Steusel
Kaj "kajsk1ng" van Staalduinen
Fréderic "Monu" Dewever
Tom "STRYKER" Colyn
