The Overwatch League officially revealed new alternate jerseys for select teams to kick of Stage 3 of the Second season.
Up until now, Overwatch League teams have stuck to either their home or away jerseys, but to kick off Stage 3, teams are showing off some cool-looking new alternate kits.
Teams teased the new jerseys earlier in the week, before Stage 3 had officially began, and fully revealed their new look right before the first match of the night got going.

What are the alternate jerseys like?
Each of the alternate kits is wildly different, but most manage to look a lot different than the regular jerseys, while still catching your eye.
Some might say that they’re “better” than the regular jerseys, and looking at the Florida Mayhem’s Miami Vice/Vaporwave inspired shirts, it’s tough not to get sentimental for the OWL team we could have had.
Hangzhou’s alternates might look even better than their regular pink and blue, while Philadelphia’s look like the team decided to rob a Footlocker (they still look good though, don’t worry Philly fans).
The jerseys are made by Into The AM, who made jerseys in the inaugural season, and made available on the Overwatch League store as soon as they were revealed. But it seems like only player jerseys with no blank or customizable options are available yet.

What’s next for Overwatch League?
The Overwatch League’s Stage 3 began on June 6 with a new pool of maps for teams to face off on, as well as a few other changes.
Recent reports have caused people to wonder what exactly is going on in Blizzard’s esports department, but so far, Overwatch League Stage 3 seemed to go off smoothly, besides a few problems with the stream and reports of some players not receiving OWL tokens.
Tickets are currently on sale for the Overwatch League 2019 Grand Finals, which will take place in Philadelphia on Sunday, September 29. No word on whether or not DJ Khaled will be making another appearance, though.
