The Danish rifler is officially free to sign with another organisation.
Philip “aizy” Aistrup is no longer tied to North, the Danish player announced on Wednesday. The 24-year-old had been on the bench since he and Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen were replaced by Rasmus “kreaz” Johansson and Kristoffer “Kristou” Aamand in late November after the organisation drew up a new strategy focused on talent development.
Less than three months later, North were shut down by Parken Sport & Entertainment and Nordisk Film, which cited the global health situation’s impact on the esports industry as the reason to cease their investment.
aizy had a four-year spell with North following his transfer from FaZe in February 2017. He helped the team to pick up title wins from DreamHack Masters Stockholm in 2018 and from DreamHack Open events in Montreal, Tours, Valencia and Sevilla between 2017 and 2019.
In March, he linked up with his former North teammates Nicklas “gade” Gade and Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye in a new team called HYENAS, who also include Johannes “b0RUP” Borup and Frederik “Fessor” Sørensen. The team recently competed in the second open qualifier for IEM Summer, in which they were knocked out by MAD Lions in the Round of 32.
