D.C.’s professional esports team officially has a name: The Washington Justice.

On Monday, Mark Ein’s Washington Esports Ventures made the team name announcement, along with unveiling the team’s logo and colors of red, white and blue ahead of the 2019 season. Back in September, Ein, who is a native Washingtonian, businessman and entrepreneur, purchased an Overwatch League team, making him the owner of D.C.’s first professional esports team, Technical.ly DC previously reported. The D.C.-based esports team’s territory will expand from Baltimore, Md. to Richmond, Va.

The Washington Justice’s logo is a shield banded in red and white stripes, with a blue setting at the top centered by a single white star. The bottom of the shield forms a subtle “W” as a tribute to the region.

“There is no region in the world that attracts more people to serve the cause of justice in government, philanthropy, academia, military service, and the private sector than Washington. In fact, D.C.’s official city motto is ‘Justitia Omnibus,’ which translates to ‘Justice for All’,” Ein said in a statement. “As a team representing the broader DMV region, it was important that our team identity reflects a value that unifies all of our community members, representing the full diversity of backgrounds and beliefs.”

The team took to Twitter to celebrate the reveal with a video.

Since making its first hires, The Washington Justice has expanded its leadership team adding Kate Mitchell, assistant general manager of Washington Esports Ventures, assistant coach Kyoung Ey Molly “AVALLA” Kim and more.

The Washington Justice will reveal the full team roster over the next week from the team’s social media channels, the press release states. The second Overwatch League season kicks off Feb. 14, 2019, with 20 teams.
