Grayhound Disbands: Australian CS:GO Squad Seeks New Beginnings After Major Setback

Grayhound, a notable presence in the esports arena, has announced the cessation of its operations, prompting its Australian CS:GO team to seek a new organization. This development follows closely on the heels of the team's unsuccessful bid to qualify for the PGL Major Copenhagen, where they finished third at the Asia RMR.

Through a statement on X/Twitter by the team's In-Game Leader (IGL), Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong, it was made clear that the squad is determined to stick together and is actively looking for a regional organization to join. Dexter emphasized the team's upcoming engagements, including participation in IEM Chengdu, the ESL Pro League, and IEM Dallas, showcasing their continued relevance in competitive play.

Grayhound made its foray into CS:GO in 2017, acquiring the roster from Immunity, which included players such as Erdenetsogt "⁠erkaSt⁠" Gantulga and Sean "⁠Gratisfaction⁠" Kaiwai. The team gained prominence, especially in 2019, by securing a spot at the IEM Katowice Major. Despite a commendable performance against Vitality, they concluded the event without a win.

This move allowed Grayhound to feature in two additional Majors, both times ending their journey in the Challengers Stage.
