The Hangzhou Spark's name and lightning-based logo is a reference to a character in the anime A Certain Scientific Railgun. The anime also referenced in the name of the Spark's parent company, Chinese website Bilibili. The pink and blue color scheme also refers back to the parent company, who use the colors on their website.
They are the last of the Chinese franchises to reveal their branding and the third to last franchise overall to do so. The North American franchises of Vancouver and Washington, D.C. are the remaining brand-less franchises.
The organization has yet to officially reveal any of its players. They are among three teams that have not yet announced a single signing. The other two franchises are the Chengdu Hunters and Vancouver.
The Spark have until December 1 to sign at least eight players to their roster.
