Bendtner’s first play is a CSGO team that consists of young Danish talents.

“When the Coronavirus struck I started playing CSGO. It gave me a sense of connection to the outside world. My knowledge and interest grew, and I learned about the esports industry and its impact on young people working hard to make it to the top,” Nicklas Bendtner says in a statement.

“That is why I founded Prosapia Esport, so my staff and I can aid young and promising talents to reach their goals,” he says.
