Experienced OPL performer to lead esports efforts
We are excited to announce the appointment of Brandon “Juves” Defina as General Manager of our new OPL team, to head up our esports operations and recruitment for SG ESports.
“It’s great to have Juves in place now that the OPL free agency period is underway. He has a strong knowledge of the OPL scene as a recently retired player and is super plugged into the OPL ecosystem, which is exactly what we were looking for” said Sean Callanan.
Callanan on why Juves made sense as GM: “Juves and I have connected on similar values of hard work, honesty and a desire to see our players grow both professionally and personally within our team. I’ve been impressed with his knowledge and forthright opinion on the industry.”
Juves on his post playing career: “There comes a point in every players career where they just feel it’s the right time to move on to something different. Esports is and always will be my passion, that’s why when I got the opportunity to work with Sean, I jumped at it.”
Juves on his goals as General Manager: “My goals as GM are to ensure all of my players have the best resources available to improve as players and individuals. Another goal of mine is to help develop the new OPL team as one of the most fan focused, memorable and loveable teams in the OPL.”
Juves is a Headspace Ambassador with fellow elite athletes from AFL, NRL, Rugby & Cricket.
