Professional Golfer Invests $20 Million Into Boston Breach

Boston Breach, the Call of Duty League franchise under the ownership of Kraft Sports & Entertainment (also home of the Boston Uprising and Oxygen Gaming), has revealed that they have raised a whopping $20 million in funding from their most recent financing round, with U.S. Open winner Jon Rahm investing in the organisation.

The Breach joined the Call of Duty League as the 12th team prior to the start of the third season, as the Washington esports Group's deal fell through and the merger between Envy and OpTic Gaming left a space open for bidders.

After two successful stages in the CDL, Boston Breach has now announced that Call of Duty superfan and professional golfer, Jon Rahm, will be joining the board.

Jon Rahm Invests In Boston Breach

Jon Rahm, a Spanish golfer most known for winning the 2021 U.S. Open, has openly expressed his love of esports, specifically being a member of the Green Wall by watching OpTic Chicago before his only Major Championship win. 

Just hours before lifting the U.S. Open trophy, Rahm grabbed a coffee and his breakfast and tuned into OpTic's CDL 2021 Stage 4 game, which he detailed in his post-match press conference.

 

Now, with the arrival of Boston Breach, it appears Rahm has a new team to support, as he has invested $20 million into the CDL franchise.

"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 Gronkowski's was a no-brainer. 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," said Rahm.

The investment follows a suspected $27 million buy-in to the league which was likely sought-after by Envy, who sold the league position to Boston Breach. Previously, Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag stated that LA Thieves paid the $27 million figure when they bought the league position from Hector "H3CZ" Rodriguez, which would imply that Rahm's money will be put to good use in replenishing Breach's funds.

"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 Murphy Vandervelde, Executive Chairman of Oxygen Esports.

"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."
