On August 6th, 2018, Brigade Esports was released along with its first competitive roster playing Rocket League. The initial support was amazing, creating an initial fan base that provided a push to help spread the organization’s story and competitive play.

Having released, Brigade Esports would become one of the only (if not the only) Disabled Veteran Owned and Operated Esports Organizations active at the time. As an organization, Brigade’s roster is not comprised of only veterans/military, but have many amongst the ranks.
