Esports organization ReKTGlobal announces that Nicky Romero will headline the London Royal Ravens Home Series, the United Kingdom’s kickoff event for the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League on Feb. 8-9, 2020.

One of the most influential modern electronic music artists and media moguls of our time, Romero will headline the London Royal Ravens Home Series, which marks the first hometown tournament for the team in Call of Duty League’s inaugural season. In addition to an unforgettable concert experience on Feb. 8, Call of Duty superfans will have the opportunity to connect with Romero at a VIP meet-and-greet and watch him as he takes on soon-to-be-announced celeb opponents during one of the highly anticipated Hype Battles that allow the world’s biggest stars to showcase their Call of Duty skills on the main stage at league events. For more details on the event, and to purchase tickets, head here.

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. In its inaugural season, pro teams compete in 5-versus-5 Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare multiplayer matches, on PlayStation®4. The professional competition features the best Call of Duty esports players from around the globe, battling for the ultimate prize: The Call of Duty League Championship.

“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 Managing Director Michael’ ODEE’ O’Dell, who also serves as Chief Gaming Officer for parent company ReKTGobal. “As headliner, Nicky Romero brings incredible energy to the stage. He has strong ties to the UK and the esports community as an avid Call of Duty player and an investor committed to helping bring esports to its fullest potential. Between the action-packed tournament gameplay with Romero at the analyst desk on Sunday, and the Hype Battle and his exclusive concert on Saturday evening, fans are in for a real treat at this can’t-miss event.”


After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” (with Krewella) and #1 single “I Could Be The One” (with Avicii), Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collabs with Mike Williams & Amba Shepherd, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, DallasK & XYLØ and Steve Aoki & Kiiara to remixes for the likes of Kygo, Rita Ora, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. All the while showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to touch down across the globe for his incredible live performances, including residencies at Las Vegas’ Hakkasan and Omnia and forthcoming shows at ageHa in Tokio, Echostage in Washington DC, Du Arena in Abu Dhabi and more.

“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,” remarked Nicky Romero. “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.”

The London Royal Ravens event will kick off a tournament-style format that is familiar to the legacy of Call of Duty esports and former Call of Duty World League format, which featured pool play followed by a playoff bracket. Coupled with a new points system, the updated format will deliver an impactful, competitive experience for all. In addition to the hometown London Royal Ravens team, the Home Series weekend will feature the Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, Los Angeles Guerrillas, New York Subliners, Paris Legion, Seattle Surge and Toronto Ultra.

Founded in 2016, the ReKTGlobal esports organization bridges the gap between the multi-billion-dollar business of traditional sports and the burgeoning business of esports and competitive gaming. ReKTGlobal owns the London Royal Ravens Call of Duty London franchise team and global esports powerhouse Rogue. The organization recently added American tennis prodigy Taylor Fritz, NBA All-Star Rudy Gobert and the NFL’s Landon Collins to its investor team, closed a multi-year deal with TIME’s Most Influential DrLupo and welcomed Michael “ODEE” O’Dell to the global esports organization as Chief Gaming Officer. ReKTGlobal also acquired both Fullcube, the leading platform and playbook provider of fan-based Insider programs, and Greenlit Content, a hybrid company behind some of gaming’s most popular editorial sites and viral branded gaming content, events and activations in collaboration with brands like Xbox, HyperX, Epic Games, Activision Blizzard and Warner Bros.

R3HAB

Opening with angelic vocals over a barely-there bassline, we soon discover that this track packs a punch of attitude when the breakdown dives into a bouncy, groovy soundscape intermixed with upbeat melodies. “Creep” will feel at home on the radio and during live performances, which might make it your new go-to track for any occasion.

His talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs and festivals, all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album “Trouble” through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2019, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight,” while his sophomore album “The Wave,” revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone. In 2019 R3HAB’s “All Around The World” with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. It was followed by “Flames,” R3HAB’s collaboration with ZAYN.

Since his first release, “Who We Are” in summer 2018, GATTÜSO has rapidly made a name for himself in the dance music scene. He has twice charted top 10 on Billboard Dance Radio, his songs have been streamed over 70 million times on Spotify and Apple Music, and his music has been endorsed by top artists such as Tiesto, R3HAB, Galantis, Sam Feldt, Steve Aoki, and many more. GATTÜSO has released music with leading international dance labels Enhanced Music and Armada Music, R3HAB’s label CYB3RPVNK, as well as through his own label, T&T Records. GATTÜSO launched into 2020 will a ton of momentum which includes his recently released remix of R3HAB, ZAYN and Jungleboi’s “Flames,” his single “Walk On Water featuring Kat Nestel” (the first release from a new label deal with Ultra Music) and a new live representation agreement with William Morris.
