Dallas Empire: Our Story
The Dallas Empire start a new chapter in Call of Duty history.

The team is owned and operated by Envy Gaming, which has fielded one of the most elite Call of Duty teams in the world for more than a decade. The Dallas Empire name and branding are a nod to our past, our future, and the great State of Texas.

Born and raised in Texas, Dallas Empire owner Mike Rufail grew up reciting the Texas State Song. History buffs may recognize the symbolism in the team’s name derived from the lyrics, “O Empire wide and glorious, you stand supremely blest.”

Empire also embodies the legacy that its parent organization Envy has built since entering the competitive Call of Duty scene in 2007. Envy achieved phenomenal success, including the most World Championship Grand Finals appearances of any Call of Duty esports team.

Finally, the name Empire evokes the spirit of entrepreneurialism. This organization started from humble beginnings and clawed its way to the top. Launching the Dallas Empire brand to fans around the world is a dream realized. And a story we hope inspires the community and next wave of gaming pioneers.

The primary team colors are black and gold, with a secondary color of standard blue. The logo features an imposing crown resting atop the Dallas Empire mark, symbolic of the championships we intend to bring to Texas. The crown components include an N and V shape as a nod to Envy Gaming’s history in Call of Duty.

This team is hardworking, focused, and confident. And one we expect Dallas will be proud to call its own.
