If you felt a little jolt of excitement when reading this headline, we're right there with you. We're very happy to present the name of the San Francisco, California franchise of the Overwatch League™: the San Francisco Shock! The Shock's logo references parts of San Francisco's past and present that are as vivacious as the bright orange of the city's famous Golden Gate Bridge. The seismograph waves and the name evoke the region's earthquake activity, while its gold color hearkens back to San Francisco's origins in the California gold rush of the 1800s. Congratulations to the San Francisco Shock and its parent organization NRG Esports!
