DC-Based Overwatch League Franchise Unveils Name, Branding

The DC-based Overwatch League franchise today "unveiled its team name" as the Washington Justice. The Justice are "one of eight expansion franchises that will begin play" in the '19 season, "bringing the total number of teams" in the esports league to 20. The team's logo features a "shield branded with red and white stripes." The bottom of the shield "forms a subtle 'W,' centered around the Washington Monument." The franchise claims the single white star is “an ode to the American flag, our capital city, and a symbol of unity.” The franchise "will market to fans from Baltimore to Richmond" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 12/3).

The Vancouver OWL team unveiled its Titans moniker over the weekend.
