Owned by DC-Based Entrepreneur Mark Ein, The Team Represents the Entire Capital Region From Baltimore to Richmond as Part of Activision Blizzard’s Global League Expansion of the Overwatch League
“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,” said Mr. Ein. “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,” added Mr. Ein.
Along with the red, white, and blue color palette, the Washington Justice logo is composed of a shield banded in red and white stripes. The bottom of the shield forms a subtle “W” in tribute to the region, centered on the Washington Monument. The shield is crowned with a single white star in a blue setting as an ode to the American flag, our capital city, and as a symbol of unity. The Washington Justice’s marketing territory spans the entire thriving Capital Region from Baltimore to Richmond, collectively the third largest economy in the U.S. and seventh largest in the world.
Washington, DC, joined the Overwatch League’s global, city-based league as one of eight new expansion franchises following a widely-successful inaugural season.
