Lightning Pandas acquire professional Fortnite roster

Kairos Media, a leading social media focused digital communications agency, is delighted to announce the official acquisition of a professional Fortnite team for the Lightning Pandas, an esports organisation owned by the company.

Fortnite, a free-to-play Battle Royale video game, currently boasts over 45 million players, a record-breaking 3.4 million concurrent users and recently announced its initiative to provide an industry-breaking $100 million in tournament prize pools.

After several months of scouting, research and discussions, we’re delighted to welcome Merticariu ‘TheRealMerti’ Catalin, Stefan ‘ItsZaxi’ Østergaard? and Nikolaj ‘Tranq96’ Toft to the organisation.

The European squad will join the Lightning Pandas as their third competitive roster since the organisation re-launched last year, following professional FIFA player Sean ‘Dragonn Allen’ and Dylan ‘Theory’ McGee, who recently joined the Call of Duty roster, alongside Jevon ‘Goonjar’ Gooljar, Matteo ‘Royalty’ Faithfull and John ‘Xotic’ Bruno.

Rahul Uppal, Esports Manager at Kairos said:

“As Fortnite continues to take the industry by storm, we’re excited to join the forefront of the competitive community, as we welcome one of Europe’s most promising rosters to their new home. I’m extremely excited to work with ItsZaxi, TheRealMerti and Tranq96, who at the time of writing, are ranked 13th, 23rd and 52nd in the world respectively.”

Merticariu Catalin, said:

“We are grateful for the opportunity to join the Lighting Pandas and be a part of the most successful game in the world, Fortnite. We’re ready to accomplish great things.”
