On 19 August 2021, Nicolai Petersen was the subject of a 2–year participation ban imposed by ESIC.
On 29 November 2022, the parties met in person in order to discuss matters arising from that participation ban. The meeting was conducted in good faith and in a collaborative spirit. While the parties were in disagreement on certain matters, both parties recognised the importance of integrity to the thriving Esports industry.
Following discussions between the parties, Mr Petersen has agreed to undertake relevant training and ESIC has confirmed that it will review its policies and procedures to ensure they are consistent with good industry practice and fit for purpose. In light of the constructive engagement between the parties, Mr Petersen will return to participation in ESIC member events with immediate effect.
This statement supersedes any and all previous public statements made by the parties on this matter, and the parties will make no further comment on this matter.
