ReKTGlobal, the parent company of North American organisation Rogue and the London Call of Duty franchise, has announced French basketball player Rudy Gobert as its latest investor.

Amish Shah, Co-founder of ReKTGlobal discussed the news in a release: “Rudy’s a phenomenal fit for ReKTGlobal. A passionate and longtime gamer, Rudy also brings a strong business acumen and fresh ideas to the table. As he’s been wanting to invest in esports and get more involved in the gaming industry, we are honored that he selected ReKTGlobal to partner with, and we are excited to have him on board as our first traditional professional sports athlete.”

Personality, streamer, and competitor Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo recently entered a multi-year contract expansion with ReKTGlobal. The deal sees him act as the face of Rogue through appearances, live streams, and activations; he received equity in the company as part of the agreement.

Gobert also commented on the venture: “My passion for gaming is well-known among both the Utah Jazz and my team in France. I’ve wanted to invest in and get more involved in esports for a while, and I’m really excited to make history with the ReKTGlobal family. For years now, I’ve used gaming to unwind and relax during the season. It’s also how I manage to keep up with my friends when I’m on the road. I’m especially looking forward to playing with the new Call of Duty franchise team before they begin competing next year.”
