The Overwatch league Season 2 is set to start from the 14th of February 2019. Eight new teams join the founding teams for Season 2. This season, the new teams come from all across the globe including North America, Europe and China. China will see multiple new franchises joining into the Overwatch League.
Europe, we heard you.
This is Paris.

For Blizzard, the Overwatch League is a successful venture with high viewership numbers as well as great sponsorships. Blizzard has been very proactive in helping the teams to get sponsorships as well as make Overwatch league a household name.
The eight new teams announced for Season 2 are slowly revealing their name, their logo as well as roster. DM Esports owns the Paris franchise. This is a global company focused on esports entertainment and investments will operate the team in Paris, France.
We are thrilled to reveal the Paris Eternal brand to Overwatch fans in France, throughout Europe, and around the globe.

The European Fanbase
The team colours are blue, burgundy, white, and gold. The team logo incorporates an infinity symbol within the body of a digitized Gallic rooster, long the national symbol of France. Futuristic gold font accompanies the mark.
The team recently announced an entirely European roster including: Benjamin “BenBest” Dieulafait (FR), Damien “HyP” Souville (FR), Nicolas “NiCOgdh” Moret (FR) and Terence “SoOn” Tarlier (FR), Karol “danye” Szczesniak (PL), Finnbjörn “Finnsi” Jonasson (IS), Harrison “Kruise” Pond (UK), Roni “LhCloudy” Tiihonen (FI), and George “ShaDowBurn” Gushcha (RU).

The Overwatch League Season 2 still sees only two European teams. Being early investors into the Overwatch League, these two franchises [ Paris and London ] have a huge advantage when it comes to the fan base. They can cultivate their fanbase very early which will give them an advantage going later into the League’s life cycle.
We expect the other teams also to publicly announce their team names and logos very soon. For now, the Overwatch esports scene continues in February when the Season 2 starts. You can read the full announcement here\.
