In an interview published on Forbes, Vikkstar discussed the role he would play on the London Royal Ravens. His role as co-owner is more than normal influencer deals that fans are used to.
“As a London local, I’ve been aware of the Royal Ravens since their launch and am excited to get involved,” said Vikkstar. “As I become a co-owner, I’ll be applying the same passion I have towards building my community, to supporting the Royal Ravens as they compete in the Call of Duty league. I can’t wait to see how fans react to all the fun content we have planned. I’m lucky to have a large community that’s always excited to see me compete and produce new content. With the Royal Ravens by my side, we’ll do just that. I’m looking forward to training with the team, sharing a behind-the-scenes look at its operation, and introducing the Royal Ravens family to a global audience.”
While a large part of his success was through The Sidemen, it’s also thanks to his gaming prowess. Vikkstar’s impressive skills in Call of Duty Warzone saw him rise in popularity throughout Call of Duty Modern Warfare. As Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War releases tomorrow, fans can’t wait to see what Vikkstar has coming.
The London Royal Ravens recently announced their roster for the upcoming 2021 season. With the backing of Vikkstar the London Ravens potential is endless.
