Only two Overwatch League expansion teams have yet to reveal their branding. Come Saturday, that number will be just one. Vancouver’s Overwatch League team, which is owned by the Vancouver Canucks ownership group Aquilini Group, will be revealed on Dec. 1 during the Canucks’ game against the Dallas Stars at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena.

The roster, management, and branding for the 2019 Overwatch League season will be unveiled during the game’s second intermission. For those unable to make the game in Vancouver, the Overwatch League franchise will stream the announcement live on Twitch at 4:30pm CT.

Both Vancouver and Washington, D.C. have been mostly silent during the Overwatch League offseason—and Vancouver’s branding is the only new franchise that wasn’t leaked in early November. Since the leak, all franchise names and logos have been confirmed, except one. Those announced include Paris Eternal, Toronto Defiant, Hangzhou Spark, Guangzhou Charge, and Chengdu Hunters. Washington, D.C.’s Overwatch League team was listed in the leak as Washington Justice, but the name and logo haven’t been revealed just yet.

All 20 Overwatch League teams have until Dec. 1 to sign a minimum of eight players to their rosters. Teams can continue signing players after that, until an undisclosed roster lock period. The Overwatch League’s 2019 season begins Feb. 14 at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles.
