London’s kick-off Call of Duty League event will see international DJ Nicky Romero perform a headline show.
He will also take part as a celebrity contender in the London Royal Ravens’ Home Series’ 2v2 Hype Battle.
Esports organisation ReKTGlobal – which owns the Rogue and Royal Ravens teams – previously announced that the UK’s kick-off event for the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League will take place on February 8th and 9th 2020.
As well as the concert experience on February 8th, Call of Duty fans will have the opportunity to connect with Romero at a VIP meet-and-greet and watch him as he takes on other celeb opponents during hype battles on the main stage.
The Call of Duty League is a global city-based esports league composed of 12 professional teams, representing 11 markets across North America and Europe. Teams will compete in 5v5 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer matches on PS4.
“We’re excited to bring an incredible and historic weekend filled with unforgettable performances and festivities to Call of Duty’s most loyal fans and the community as a whole,” commented London Royal Ravens MD Michael ‘ODEE’ O’Dell.
Nicky is responsible for hits including Toulouse, I Could Be The One and others, and he has founded his own label Protocol Recordings. He has 18m+ social followers and almost 200m plays on Spotify.
“For years, I’ve used gaming to unwind after long nights in the studio and as a way to stay connected with friends when I’m on the road performing,” he said. “Whether it’s during a show or on social media, I love engaging with my fans.
“I am honored to be a part of the Royal Ravens first Home Series event and look forward to a weekend filled with all things Call of Duty.”
British esports veteran and Team Dignitas founder Michael ‘ODEE’ O’Dell left Dignitas last year to join ReKTGlobal and began work on the Royal Ravens project.
