Who is Gold Squadron?

Dion Morales - Gold Leader


Dion Morales is the founder, producer, and host of Gold Squadron's podcasts and live stream events. His first ever live stream from the 2016 World Championships thrust the brand to the forefront of live X-Wing tournament coverage. Dion's vision for Gold Squadron is to create inclusive content for X-Wing players of all skill levels from around the globe.
