The name of the team follows suit with the rest of Kraft's franchises by honouring Boston's revolutionary history. Unlike the New England Patriots and Revolution however, the Boston Uprising does not use a red, white, and blue color scheme but instead one heavy in blue and yellow. The colors, according to a press release from the team, are in reference to the city's flag.
This won't be the only piece of Overwatch League news to come out of Boston this week. The team has announced over Twitter that President of Gaming Chris, "HuK" Loranger, will be announcing the team's roster tomorrow.
