North has decided to part ways with their coach, Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg and is replacing him with Jimmy “Jumpy” Berndtsson.
After a rough year together, North have decided to end their partnership with Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg. North thanked the coach but hadn’t revealed any details. Following the information provided by mithR, it seems like North has already found a replacement.
With mithR as their coach, North won ICE Challenge 2019 and DreamHack Open Sevilla. Unfortunately, these results weren't enough for the team and organization to prolong the partnership with mithR.

We are really happy to welcome “Jumpy” as our new CS:GO Head Coach!

- Nicklas "gade" Gade
- René "cajunb" Borg
- Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen
- Jakob "JUGi" Hansen (benched.)
