Series to Enhance and Elevate Rooms of Deserving Young Gamers From Across the Country

NEW YORK – (May 12, 2021) –Team Whistle, the global sports media and entertainment company today announced a partnership with YouTube sensation Matthew Meagher, better known as MMG, to create the new series RELOAD MY ROOM premiering on Wednesday, May 12th on Whistle’s YouTube page.

The series hosted by MMG, who currently has 2.01M subscribers, offers young deserving gamers from across the country a chance to have their rooms completely made over into a dream space filled with equipment fit for a professional player.

“At Team Whistle, our sweet spot is spotlighting relatable characters and stories at the intersection of sports and entertainment,” said Dashiell Desloovere, VP of Content Strategy and Programming at Team Whistle. “ Our new series RELOAD MY ROOM was born from our internal analytics that found that 91 percent of our fans are interested in lifestyle content around gaming, and 95 percent see gaming as an important way to stay connected in the current climate. From there we focused on locating real people that are accessible to our audience while being incredibly deserving of the experience.”

“I am a lifelong sports enthusiast and gamer. It was high school when I really embraced my obsession with gaming which ultimately brought me to YouTube to create my own channel,” said MMG. “When Team Whistle approached me about the creation of this series, I was excited to get on board so I could pay it forward and give back to the next generation of gamers.”

In the first episode we follow California junior high school esports rocket league captain, Diego Bañuelos and his coach as they share the origin of the team and its necessity given the limitations on interaction during quarantine. For Diego and his classmates, the group is an opportunity to connect and communicate with kids their age as a remedy to the challenges faced by virtual learning. Through the episode it becomes apparent Diego is a positive and humble force, constantly elevating those around him. MMG takes on the project with eager anticipation knowing he is going to be able to deliver Diego a space he could only imagine after tirelessly saving to afford the necessary parts to build a computer with his brother to amplify his game. In upcoming episodes we will meet female gamer Jacki Jing and more. If you know a young gamer who is deserving of their own room relaunch have them apply here.
