Kairos Media signs professional Call of Duty team for the Lightning Pandas
Kairos Media, a leading social media focused digital communications agency, is delighted to announce the official acquisition of a professional Call of Duty team for the Lightning Pandas, an esports organisation owned by the company.
Ahead of the first event of the Call of Duty® World League season, CWL Dallas Open, Jevon “Goonjar” Gooljar, Matteo “Royalty” Faithfull, Nicholas “Proto” Maldonado and John “Xotic” Bruno join the Lightning Pandas as the tenth seed in North America and will compete within the open bracket of the tournament.
The Canadian based team will join the Lightning Pandas as their third acquisition since the organisation re-launched in September, following professional FIFA player Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen, who recently qualified for the first event of the FIFA 18 Global Series as the fourth highest rated player on the Xbox One, and world renowned YouTuber Jamie ‘Bateson’ Bateson.
Rahul Uppal, Esports Manager at Kairos, said:
“Following the successful relaunch of the Lightning Pandas, the concept of returning to Call of Duty was one we we’re keen to explore, however, we wanted to ensure we returned in the correct manner with a team who shared our ambitions as an organisation. As a result, I’m delighted to welcome Royalty and co. to their new home.”
Michael Craddock, Co-Founder at Kairos and CEO of the Lightning Pandas, said:
“As one of the founding members of the Lightning Pandas, I’m excited to return to the competitive Call of Duty community and take the organisation back to it’s roots. Call of Duty has been one of the most influential titles in my career and I look forward to a new chapter.”
