Extra Salt invited to DreamHack Open September

We’ve been following the CS:GO esports exploits of Extra Salt for quite some time now, since they have two South African players and a coach. While the team is crushing it in ESEA S38 NA Premier Division so far, with a clean 3-0 record, we haven’t seen them compete in anything else for a bit.

This will soon change, as Extra Salt is set to compete in the Fragadelphia BLAST Qualifier Fall 2021 in mid-September. The squad has also received a direct invite to DreamHack Open September.
