Toronto Overwatch Team Reveals Official Name … We're Defiant!

Exclusive Details


The Toronto Overwatch squad finally has an official team name — TORONTO DEFIANT!!! 

It’s a big deal in the eSports world — there are 20 teams from cities all over the world competing in the official Overwatch league. 

Toronto was 1 of the 8 expansion franchises that joined the league for the 2019 season — and now they’re debuting their official team name and colors. 

Check out the logo … featuring red and black colors next to some bad-ass looking heroes. 

The team will compete in the Atlantic Division when the league kicks off in February — taking on squads from Boston, London, Houston and New York. 

FYI, it’s a tough division considering London won the Overwatch League championship in 2018. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Toronto’s team president, Chris Overholt, who tells us since Drake is becoming a big eSports fan, they’re hoping he’ll come out and support the hometown squad. 

And, since team players make a real-life salary in the Overwatch league, we asked if anyone would crack 7 figures this year … but it doesn’t seem we’re at that point quite yet. 

The highest player in the league right now is a 17-year-old who goes by the name Sinatraa — he’s making $ 150k per year (and his mom had to sign his contract). 

Bottom line — eSports is exploding, so get your kids some sticks already.
