Washington Esports Ventures, led by businessman, investor, and entrepreneur, Mark Ein; has today announced the official name, logo and identity for Washington, DC’s new Overwatch League team—the Washington Justice.
“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.’”
said Mr. Ein.
The team is home to two trailblazing role models for women in the esports community: Kate Mitchell, a tireless leader in Overwatch grassroots esports, building and leading organisations to competitive success; and, Molly “AVALLA” Kim, who has built a reputation for her deeply analytic coaching style in Overwatch Contenders, leading to her becoming the first female coach in the Overwatch League.
They are joined by a player-coach duo that helped the New York Excelsior to finish with a league-best 34-6 record; becoming the only team to make the finals of all four stages of the season; winning two: head coach and widely-renowned teacher of the game Hyeong-seok “WizardHyeong” Kim, and main tank player and fan-favourite Joon-hwa “Janus” Song. Together, they are building a team that intends to compete with the best across the league.
The staff and players come from five different countries, including the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, and South Korea. The Washington Justice will reveal the full team roster over the coming week through the team’s social media channels.
