Red Reserve’s Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris and Rhys ‘Rated’ Price have confirmed that the team has secured Visas and will be moving to the United States for the Black Ops 4 season.
The British players took to Twitter to announce the good news, after being told by customs official during the WWI season that they could no longer travel on tourist visas.
They additionally confirmed that the team will be moving into a team house located in Texas once they arrive stateside.
P1 Visas have been approved for me & the team, house being situated in Texas cannot wait to get next year started, thank you to @RedReserve for everything.

The Red Reserve roster will be comprised of Skrapz, Zer0, Rated, Ben ‘Bance’ Bance, and Joseph ‘Joee’ Pinnington as the competitive format as switched to 5v5 for the Black Ops 4 season.
Since Red Reserve has retained three members from their roster during the WWII season, they will automatically qualify for pool play at CWL Vegas in December.
Along with the change in team size, the CWL has also implemented a rule change that will allow players to cross regions without any limitation.
The rule change has led many organizations to form multinational rosters and move their players to the United States in preparation for the new season.
With Red Reserve and many other teams moving to America, you can bet that the competition will be as fierce as ever once the season begins in a couple months.
