In a land grab for some sort of relevance in 2019, former Australian Idol contestant Shannon “Nollsy” Noll announced at PAX Australia over the weekend that he would be captaining a new Esports squad.
Called the “Motley Squad” Nollsy plans on filling out the remaining slots of his team with “fellow celebs” according to the press release, meaning the likely return of other reality show contestants, former sports stars and radio hosts that tend to round out this level of the celebrity ranks.
The Motley Squad will then compete at Lenovo’s Legion of Champion Series IV competition, which is coming to Australia for the first time. Series IV will also see the introduction of PUBG and CS:GO to the comp, making it the largest yet.
Nollsy and his yet to be filled Motley Squad will be getting a helping hand from Twitch streamer FaZe Hazz, an ambassador for the Lenovo brand.
