Ninjas in Pyjamas (often abbreviated to NIP and NiP) is a Swedish esports organization founded in 2000. The team competed in Counter-Strike until their dissolution in 2007. In 2012, the team returned with a now heavily renowned Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad. The squad was revamped following the departure of longtime duo Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg after the end of the StarLadder Berlin Major and the re-signing of Björn "THREAT" Pers as head coach, who redirected the organization's resources into acquiring prominent young talent such as AWPer Tim "nawwk" Jonasson and in-game leader Hampus "hampus" Poser. On April 23, 2021, Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz was acquired from Astralis in a historic transfer as a replacement for the former.
