The first identity of the 12 founding franchises in the Call of Duty League has been unveiled, and it’s the London Royal Ravens.
ReKTGlobal, the parent company of Rogue, owns the franchise and has revealed its name, logo, and colours.
As per the franchise’s official website, the brand has been explained: “The idea behind our name, the London Royal Ravens, stems from the legend of the Tower Ravens. It has been said that the Kingdom and the Tower of London will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress.”
The official colours for the London Royal Ravens appear to be red, blue, and black. Michael “ODEE” O’Dell is the Managing Director of the franchise, which will have Brad ‘Wuskin’ Marshall, Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall, Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson, Jordan “Jurd” Crowley, and Rhys ‘Rated’ Price representing it.
Franchises yet to be revealed are as follows: Atlanta Esports Ventures’ Atlanta, NRG Esports’ Chicago, Envy Gaming’s Dallas, Misfits Gaming’s Florida, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment’s Los Angeles, Immortals Gaming Club’s Los Angeles, WISE Ventures’ Minnesota, Sterling.VC’s New York, c0ntact Gaming’s Paris, Enthusiast Gaming’s Seattle, and OverActive Media’s Toronto.
Esports Insider says: We knew it was coming due to leaks – both from CoD League itself and trademark listings – but with the explanation, we’re quite big fans of this branding. Having three words in a franchise name is uncommon but we’re sure fans will lap it up.
