Team Secret withdraw from the Rainbow Six ESL Premiership due to ‘unforeseen complications’

European esports organisation Team Secret have dropped out of the Rainbow Six Siege ESL Premiership.

The tournament for the UK & Ireland now has seven teams taking part in the spring 2020 split, rather than the usual eight.

The news was announced in this update from ESL UK, which confirmed that Team Secret will forfeit all prize money accumulated throughout the season, and all results and fixtures with Team Secret will result in a forfeit by them.

This means any opposing team that were due to face Team Secret will be awarded a default win, including the match with Audacity Esports from match day one.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances we have unfortunately had to withdraw from the UK Premiership. We wish all the competitors the best of luck and look forward to watching the games.”

Team Secret said in a statement: “Due to unforeseen circumstances we have unfortunately had to withdraw from the UK Premiership. We wish all the competitors the best of luck and look forward to watching the games.”

ESL UK added it would like to wish Team Secret ‘all the best in their future competitive endeavours’. 

Team Secret performance coach Wille Turunen commented on Twitter:

Esports News UK reached out to Team Secret management and players to try and find a reason for the drop-out but didn’t hear back.

The team are still a part of the Rainbow Six Siege Challenger League.
