Founded in 2020, Oxygen Esports is the largest multi-title esports organization in New England. From its inception, OXG and its leadership have built their reputation and name atop a data-driven and results-based approach to talent acquisition and fan engagement, which continues to breathe new life into the esports landscape.
In 2021, Oxygen Esports merged with and absorbed the Kraft Sports and Entertainment (New England Patriots, New England Revolution) esports operation, with the purpose of integrating the operations of the OWL franchise team, The Boston Uprising, while also entering the 2022 Call of Duty League through the creation and launch of the Boston-based CDL franchise, the Boston Breach. This historic deal firmly positioned Oxygen Esports as Boston’s premier esports organization and one of the largest in North America.
Our industry-veteran management team has experience in all aspects of the esports space. Our unifying theme is expertise in building grassroots communities and growing them into long-term, engaged fan bases. We plan to use this experience to further develop our collection of teams, franchises, and develop New England into a world-class incubator for talent and competition. In addition to operating top-tier teams, OXG also specializes in various other related aspects of the industry, including but not limited to content creation, event programming, and talent management.
