World Number 3 PGA Athlete Jon Rahm furthers his love for Call of Duty Esports after investing $20 million in Boston Breach.
The Boston Breach have just received a massive $20 million investment from professional golfer Jon Rahm. The current world number 3, who is a passionate follower of the CDL, will be aiding in the development of Esports culture within the New England area.
Who is Jon Rahm?
Jon Rahm is a Spanish golfer and is currently ranked third in the official world golf rankings. Rahm has been a passionate follower of the CDL for quite some time. He famously revealed that he is a keen fan of OpTic Gaming during a press conference following his victory at the 2021 US Open. And it seems that now he has opted to further involve himself within CoD Esports. Only this time with another green-colored CDL team in the form the recently formed Boston Breach.
"My love for Call of Duty and the Call of Duty League is widely known and the opportunity to invest in OXG alongside partners like the Kraft Family, Danny Ainge, and the Gronkowskis was a no-brainer," Rahm said in a press release that was released earlier today. "I'm excited to support Oxygen Esports, the Boston Breach, and the Boston Uprising. Their focus on competitive engagement and community development resonates with me on and off the course."
Oxygen Esports and Boston Uprising also receive support
This announcement comes via a post made on Oxygen Esports' Twitter page earlier today. Which was accompanied with the corresponding press release. In it Oxygen officially welcomed Rahm and various other strategic investors to the KSE family. They were also keen to express their gratitude to the CoD community for the warm reception they have received since joining the CDL.
"Since the completion of our deal with Kraft Sports & Entertainment to acquire the Boston Uprising, we've seen tremendous reception from investors and fans alike surrounding the integration of the Boston Uprising roster into OXG," said Murphy Vandervelde, Executive Chairman for Oxygen Esports.
The Breach have made a very good impression since joining the CDL at the start of this season. Having placed in the Top 4 at the Major 2 LAN in Minnesota three weeks ago. And it seems that Oxygen are keen to further develop a strong Esports presence within New England.
"We believe that to build a sustainable, local eco-system we must build an infrastructure to support a transparent talent pipeline while providing digital and physical esports programming for players of all ages and skill levels," said Vandervelde. "By educating and engaging the next generation of gamers at home and at our facilities, we believe the next era of esports fans will be more accustomed to playing and watching video games outside of their homes, which is key to our strategy moving forward."
