Philadelphia Fusion are the newest addition to the Overwatch League

Winston shows off the team’s orange and black color scheme.

Another team has been revealed ahead of Overwatch League’s official start in December, as the Philadelphia Fusion join the league. Just like their fellow Overwatch League teams, Fusion received a short video teaser from Blizzard revealing their team name and a preview of their uniforms, this time on Winston.

The team’s colors should be familiar to Philadelphia sports fans as those of the city’s hockey team the Philadelphia Flyers, who share a parent company with Fusion.

“Orange and black are the colors of passion here in Philadelphia, and we are proud to incorporate them as we continue to formulate our coaching staff and roster of players,” said Comcast Spectacor President and CEO Dave Scott in the team’s official announcement.

The Philadelphia Fusion join New York Excelsior and Boston Uprising as the only American teams from the East Coast teams officially unveiled so far for the league.

The Overwatch League will debut its preseason on December 6 at Blizzard Arena, with the first official season kicking off in January.
