Team Oddball, officially Team Oddball Esports, is a privately owned Esports organization based in the United States founded by Connor McLean in August of 2023. The organization currently has 5 members and operates a Fortnite Squad which competes in the Fortnite Weekly Cash Cup, and a Rocket League squad. The team as of 17 September 2023 has yet to make an official tournament appearance.
Team Oddball was first thought up during the summer of 2023, when founder Connor McLean began to take interest in the world of competitive Super Smash Brothers Melee, specifically taking interest in the player Hungrybox. It is with this interest that McLean began researching various Esports organizations and games to see where he could begin competing.
Later, in August of 2023, McLean began talks with a friend of his, Scott Berry, as to the possibility of potentially forming their own organization. After some deliberation, Team Oddball would officially open its doors on August 19th, 2023, and Berry himself would sign with Team Oddball on September 3rd, 3 weeks later, joining as Team Captain of the Oddball Fortnite Squad and as Co-Owner of the organization as a whole.
