Zedd becomes 11th team member of NYXL for Overwatch Team’s Homecoming Weekend in NYC
The intersection of electronic music and esports keeps growing, and ZEDD is back at the forefront of this intersection as he becomes the unofficial “11th man” for New York City’s Overwatch League Franchise, NYXL, during their homecoming weekend. The Overwatch League team has hosted a six-week pop-up shop called NYXL Shop & LAN, which includes a gaming center and exclusive merchandise. For the NYXL Homecoming Weekend, the players will come back to meet fans, and compete in friendly matches with NYC gamers, as well as exhibition games with the Philly and LA teams.
NYXL’s Homecoming Weekend will kicked off on Friday, November 30 with top New York gamers facing off against NYXL. On Saturday December 1, NYXL played Philadelphia Fusion following exhibition matches with the True Colors producer. To close out the weekend, NYXL will play Los Angeles Valiant on Sunday, December 2. This is not ZEDD’s first run-in with esports, after being chosen to create the official song for Riot’s League of Legends Worlds Championship back in 2016, titled “Ignite.” The NYXL Homecoming Weekend is open to the public, but for those wanted private meet & greet’s and increased access, VIP tickets are available. For those who can’t make it, all of the matches including ZEDD’s will be streamed on NYXL’s Twitch Channel.
