This week, TSM announced that Søren“Bjergsen” Bjerg had signed a new contract with them for the LCS team, and also became a part owner of the organization. This news is a bit of a surprise, but not too shocking considering both parties involved. Bjergsen will become the longest-running member of Team SoloMid, as his contract will run through the end of 2021. Not to mention now making him one of the only LCS players to own a stake in the team he plays for. Here’s a couple of quotes from the announcement made this week.
“It was essential for us to re-sign Bjergsen,” says Andy “Reginald” Dinh, CEO and Founder of TSM. “Not only is he is one of the best players at his position, he is a great leader. He shares the same values we do as an organization. He is selfless, hardworking, and focused. It is this culture of grit, fortitude, and determination that is the most vital part of our organization. At TSM we are committed to living this culture, and Bjergsen is a testament to that. He is more than just a player to us, so making him a strategic shareholder was important.”
“For the past six years, TSM has been my home and I’ve witnessed it evolve from an esports team to the organization it is today,” said Bjergsen. “I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to not only continue my career here as a player, but also be a bigger part of the incredible future that lies ahead for TSM.”
