Wikipedia has an article on Team Liquid.

Team Liquid is a professional eSports organization based in the Netherlands. Owned by Victor Goosens (Nazgul), the team began as a StarCraft: Brood War clan in 2000 and was initially centred around the video games of StarCraft II and Dota 2. In March 2014, the sponsor entered the community of professional Super Smash Bros. by forming a Melee team[1] of Ken and KDJ and became the first team with a major E-Sports pedigree to enter the Smash arena. The decision to form a team for Melee stemmed from The Smash Brothers documentary that was filmed by Samox, who also produced the announcement video for the induction of the duo to Team Liquid. Peter Nguyen (Waytosexy) welcomed Ken and KDJ on behalf of the Dota 2 team and revealed himself to be a Smash enthusiast, while Jens Aasgaard (Snute) did the same on behalf of the StarCraft team while himself revealing that he had played Melee extensively in 2002, especially as Yoshi, and equated high-level Melee play to high-level StarCraft micro (the RTS shortening of micromanagement, meaning unit control.)

On January 6th, 2015, it was announced on Twitter that Team Curse was merging with Team Liquid under the Liquid banner, which means that Team Liquid signed Team Curse's rosters, including Hungrybox and Chillin, alongside Ken and KDJ. [1]

On August 11th, 2015, Team Liquid signed Nairo as the fifth member of their Smash Bros. division.

On July 9th, 2016, Captain Crunch was signed by the team as Hungrybox's official coach.

Outside of its professional gaming endeavours, Team Liquid hosts the most-visited StarCraft-related website in the world (TeamLiquid.net); both Ken and KDJ actually had registered and used the forums prior to joining Team Liquid. Since then, it has opened its own Smash Bros. forums and has also added Smash Bros. to its wiki, Liquipedia, which already includes sections for StarCraft II, StarCraft: Brood War, Dota 2 and Hearthstone: Heroes of WarCraft.
