BREAKING: Persia Signed to Boston Uprising

The Boston Uprising announced on Twitter that they have signed flex support Zi-on “Persia” Yang to their roster.

Best known for his Zenyatta and Moira, Persia most recently played on the Hong Kong-based team Talon Esports. He competed with Talon for three seasons of Contenders Pacific, most notably winning 2018’s second season, before departing from the team in February.

In the short break between stages, the Uprising have garnered a lot of attention in trade rumors. Sources claimed that the team looked to trade main tank Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth to the Los Angeles Valiant, before later saying that the trade fell through. Later, writer Arran “Halo” Brown reported on Boston attempting to acquire Cai “Krystal” Shilong from the Hangzhou Spark. Currently, Persia is the first new player officially announced by the Uprising’s management.

The acquisition comes on the heels of a strong Stage 1 for the Uprising. With a 4-3 record, the team placed eighth overall, ultimately falling to the Vancouver Titans in playoffs.

Persia joins a solid support lineup on the Uprising, playing alongside Kristian “Kellex” Keller, Min-seok “AimGod” Kwon, and Renan “alemao” Moretto. Whether Boston plans to move him into the starting lineup remains unknown.

This piece will be updated if more information becomes available.
