Vancouver Overwatch League team announces brand reveal date

The new Vancouver Overwatch League team has announced they’ll be revealing their team branding and colors during the Vancouver Canucks game on Saturday, December 1.

Vancouver is the only new Overwatch League team that has managed to keep their logo somewhat under wraps until the official reveal.

Most of the other new teams were revealed in a leak from the official Overwatch League app on November 7, but there was a recent, separate leak that claimed to be the new Vancouver logo.

Revealing the branding during a Canuck’s game makes sense because the new Vancouver Overwatch League team is owned by Aquilini Investment Group, the owner of Canucks Sports & Entertainment, which is the parent group of the Vancouver Canucks.

Since they’re owned by the same company that owns the Canucks, it wouldn’t be a surprise for the Vancouver Overwatch League team to use same shades of blue and green as the hockey team, like the leak, and like the Philadelphia Fusion and the Flyers, who are also both owned by the same company.

For those that plan on watching and are able to, the announcement will take place during the second intermission of the Canucks v. Dallas Stars game at 2 PM ET on December 1.

For those that aren’t able to tune in, the team will probably put the announcement on their Twitter page shortly after, maybe a few fans will even make it to the game to watch the announcement live as well.


Overwatch pro Super returns on Jimmy Fallon: When to watch

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
