Wolves Esports, the esports organization of English Premier League football club Wolverhampton Wanderers, announced that it has entered competitive Rocket League through the acquisition of a fresh roster of players.

Rix “Rix Ronday” Ronday, most recently of Libertas and previously of Triple Trouble and Method, will serve as team captain. He has recruited ex-Barrage Esports player Ole “Oaly” van Doorn and former Edelweiss Esports player Luis “LuiisP” Puente Peña to join the squad alongside him.

“It is a real honour to captain the first ever Wolves Esports Rocket League team,” said Rix Ronday in a team statement. “I’m confident that we have recruited two of Rocket League’s most exciting talents in Ole and Luis and we are working hard behind the scenes to prepare for the RLCS X Winter Split kick off. Rocket League is a really fast-paced game with many similarities to football, so we hope Wolves fans will enjoy tuning in to watch the action.”

Prior to joining Rocket League, the Wolves only fielded players in EA Sports’ FIFA, but the expansion makes sense. We’ll be curious to see if this newly-assembled roster can make an impact in Europe this coming RLCS X split.
