SK Gaming is a German esports organization. Founded in 1997 under the name "Schroet Kommando" in Oberhausen, Germany, it has since then grown into one of the largest and most well-known eSports organizations in the world, and they are primarily known for their hugely successful Counter-Strike team.

On April 3, 2018, SK Gaming​ was officially announced by Supercell​ as one of the teams to participate in the inaugural season of the Clash Royale League.

History[edit]

Schroet Kommando was founded in 1997 as a German Quake-Clan by siblings Ralf "Griff" Reichert, Tim "Burke" Reichert , Benjamin "Kane" Reichert and four friends in Oberhausen. The original line-up of Schroet Kommando consisted of Ralf "Griff" Reichert, Daniel "Godlike" Beames, Tim "Burke" Reichert, Benjamin "Kane" Reichert, Kristof "Speed" Salwiczek, Carsten "Storch" Kramer and Sven "Ramses" Tümmers. According to Ralf Reichert, the original naming of the organization arose because one of the members repeatedly shouted, "Schroet!", which is generally a term for a player playing with a double-shotgun . Since then, the team used the abbreviation SK more frequently until it eventually became SK Gaming​.

The organisation's international Counter-Strike success came when they signed on the players of the Swedish Counter-Strike clan Ninjas in Pyjamas. In 2003, SK Gaming became the first electronic sports organisation to contract players, beginning with the SK Sweden Counter-Strike squad.
