Paris’ team becomes the second European team in the Overwatch League and they’re the third new expansion team to announce their name and branding, following the announcements of Atlanta Reign and Toronto Defiant last month.
The Eternal’s colors are blue, burgundy, black, white and gold. Their logo incorporates an infinity symbol within the body of a digitized Gallic rooster, which has long been the national symbol of France.
“We are thrilled to reveal the Paris Eternal brand to Overwatch fans in France, throughout Europe, and around the globe,” said Drew McCourt, Owner of DM-Esports, the organization which owns and operates the Paris Eternal team.
The announcement was made at a live event held in Paris today, in front of an excited crowd. Speakers at the event included Overwatch League Commissioner Nate Nanzer and General Manager of the Paris Eternal, Michael “Mex” De Wit. “Paris Eternal will be focused on winning and results. We believe our international roster is poised to succeed.” said De Wit.
