Virtus Pro have announced that as of December 17 long term contracts have been signed with all of their CS:GO roster, with the whole team being there since 2014.
"The renewed contracts are valid until the end of 2020, which makes it the largest agreement between players and organisation in the history of esports in terms of both duration and total contract value," the announcement revealed.
Roman Dvoryankin, Virtus Pro's General Manager, had this to say: "I am very glad to announce that our CS:GO roster has signed a new groundbreaking agreement with the organisation. For the next four years the best team in the world will continue playing for our organisation, and I am sure we going to have a lot of victories and pleasant moments as well as a lot of work to do. I would like to thank the guys for their professional approach to the negotiations. I admit they were quite difficult, but in the end we managed to reach a win-win solution. This kind of agreements are yet another step towards implementing more understandable, I would even say civilised, esports rules. Organisations and players work together for their fans. It is especially pleasant to us that the legendary players from the well-known "Golden Five" and their younger partners will keep playing for Virtus.pro until the end of 2020."
This deal is unprecedented, but what do you think of the choice to keep the roster the same?
