The Knights Charge Their Way Into the Call of Duty Scene
PITTSBURGH (November 30, 2018) – The Pittsburgh Knights charge into the battle arena in our organization’s newest game, Call of Duty (CoD).

The Knights’ Call of Duty team will consist of Christopher "Parasite" Duarte, Dylan "Theory" McGee, Andres "Lacefield" Lacefield, Casey "Pandur" Romano, Adam "GodRx" Brown.
One of the most popular and beloved first-person shooters of all time, Call of Duty has been a pillar of the esports industry since its very inception. As the Knights continue to grow and expand within the industry, staples such as Call of Duty are a necessary addition. Call of Duty has one of the highest-viewed championships, pulling over 7.6 million total viewers to last year’s Call of Duty World League Championships.
The Knights’ Call of Duty team will compete next Friday, December 7th at MLG Las Vegas in the 2018 Call of Duty World League Las Vegas. The Vegas World League pits nearly 300 amateur and pro teams against one another in a 3-day-long competition for the chance to win their share of a $250,000 prize pool. This tournament kicks off the 2019 Call of Duty World League series.
