Boston has long had a reputation for challenging the status quo, especially during the 18th century, when it gave rise to people and ideas that sparked the American Revolution. It's in this spirit that we are proud to announce the Boston Uprising, a name which evokes resilience and determination—qualities which we expect will be on prominent display by the team during the Overwatch League’s inaugural season. The team colors of blue and yellow reference the Boston flag, which has a blue and yellow city seal on a background of sky blue. Congrats to the Boston Uprising and team owners Robert and Jonathan Kraft!
