Representing the nation’s capital, the Washington franchise takes a very predictable name with the Washington Justice. However, it definitely suits their team and the values that they represent.
Justice is a universal value and the perfect name for a franchise that we hope will inspire and unite both our Washington area community and fans around the globe. There is no region in the world that attracts more people to serve the cause of justice in government, philanthropy, academia, military service, and the private sector than Washington. In fact, DC’s official city motto is ‘Justitia Omnibus,’ which translates to ‘Justice for All.’ As a team representing the broader DMV region, it was important that our team identity reflects a value that unifies all of our community members, representing the full diversity of backgrounds and Beliefs.
The Washington Franchise is one of the eight new teams joining Season 2 of the Overwatch League. They will attempt to develop a fan base in the local region. They have already promised us multiple local events which will see fan participation. We are sure that esports fans from the region will rally behind their city’s representation in the Overwatch League.
We welcome both the hundreds of thousands of passionate Overwatch fans and amateur players already in our region, as well as our new fans who want to experience the exciting future of professional esports competition for themselves. We hope you’ll join us as we represent this region in the awesome, fast-paced competition of the Overwatch League.
