casle to remain Astralis head coach

Astralis have announced that casle will remain the main team’s head coach heading into the next year. The organization also revealed that Frederik “⁠LOMME⁠” Nielsen will leave the team following a year-long service as their analyst as Astralis look to create a “new organization around the team.”

“There were several profiles in play for the role, but it is impossible to neglect Peter’s qualities, so the choice was easy in the end,” Astralis Director of Sports, Kasper Hvidt, said. “Peter has the values we always look for in Astralis, and we are delighted that he has accepted the challenge to be a vital part of what will be our new organization around the team.”

“We have come a long way with the roles on the team, but we are by no means finished,” casle said. “Neither with roles nor with the organization, and I am glad that I can now continue with the work we have started.”

“I will be a permanent part of that work, and I am very much looking forward to 2023, where we have one single goal: To prove that we belong at the very top of Counter-Strike.”

“I hope we can unveil more before the new year,” the new head coach teased.

casle transitioned from the Astralis Talent academy roster to the main team in October after just two months with the organization. He became the interim coach in a series of moves the Danish team made in the aftermath of a failed bid to qualify for the IEM Rio Major, replacing Martin “⁠trace⁠” Heldt.

At the time, the Astralis management stated it was evaluating the current setup around the team and “looking at all current and potentially new roles and needed upgrades on and around the team.”

Since then the organization formally announced the return of Nicolai “⁠device⁠” Reedtz, who replaced Asger “⁠Farlig⁠” Jensen on the roster, and now the permanent instatement of casle as the head coach. Astralis still have yet to reveal the replacement for Kristian “⁠k0nfig⁠” Wienecke two months after their star rifler departed the team.
