About Us

 

Sway was founded in 2011 by a group of friends with one passion the love for video games! 


Origin
Sway started off as a pub stomping clan called "Sway2eZ". Its founders, Anthony "Hostility" Morris, Anthony "Kuoda" Pellone, Tyler "RooTz" Marutz, and Jason "oDDiTy" Cornacchio wanted to put together a group of people to play Call of Duty and to be a feared "clan" during Call of Duties Clan War days. Along with around 10 other members, the clan began recruiting more and more members in order to win the weekly Clan Wars that Call of Duty held. With the member count growing daily, Sway achieved several 1st place finishes in the weekly Clan Wars and ideas of growth had begun. Two years later, in 2013, the name "Sway2eZ" was changed and "Sway Gaming" was born!


Esports Birth under Sway
Under the new name of "Sway Gaming", Sway entered its first ever Call of Duty LAN event for UMG St Louis in 2013 with the team roster of Hostility, oDDiTy, RooTz, and Thumper as well as Kuoda as the team coach. As the record reflects, the team did not do well but the experience gained helped the organization to keep pushing down the esports path. Eventually a few months later, Sway entered into UMG Dallas with Hostility changing the roster to include players who were more into the Esports scene and the organization placed T32. Sway wanted more with the Esports scene, not only being apart of Call of Duty, but other games like Halo, League of Legends, and more! 


Expansion
Sway had not only been apart of the North American side of Call of Duty, but it had also branched off the the European region as well as the Australian/New Zealand region as well. With the addition of #SwayAU in 2015, the organization had its sights set on the #CODWorldLeague Australia / New Zealand Qualifiers but fell short of qualifying, being eliminated in the Top8. Another move made was to bring in the first Call of Duty Ladies team which took Sway to the top of the Female Pro League. 


Not Just One Game
Sway did not just have a Call of Duty team. The organization had also expanded into League of Legends, Counter Strike, Halo, Rainbow 6 and more across both the North American and European regions. Sway vows to continue to expand in current titles and push teams to be their best. 


Content Creation Division
Sway created a content division in 2018 in an attempt to help promote all types of streamers, both big and small, to be able to grow their content. In 2020, Sway created its stream team which has a variety of streamers playing different games on the Sway Twitch channel
