The Vancouver Expansion Team of the Expat League will be known as the Titans.
The Titans of Vancouver will join Toronto's defiant and six other new teams for 2019: Atlanta, Washington, DC, Paris and Chengdu, Guangzhou and Hangzhou, China.
In the inaugural 2018 season, 12 squadrons played with overweight activities: The uprising in Boston, Florida Mayhem, Houston Outlaws, London Spitfire, New York Excelsior and Philadelphia Fusion in the Atlantic Division and Dallas Fuel, Los Angeles Gladiators, Los Angeles Valiant, San Francisco Shock, the Dynasty Seoul and Shanghai Dragons in the Pacific Division.
The Titans are owned by the Aquilini Group, the owner of Canucks Vancouver. The list, management and branding of the Spanish team were officially discovered Saturday at the Rogers Arena before the NHL match between Canucks and Dallas Stars.
The season of the observation season starts on February 14th.
"When choosing our identity, we wanted to introduce a team that will react with fans in the northwest of the Pacific," said Francesco Aquilini, managing director of Aquilini Group, in a statement. "With a local feeling and an experienced, experienced team, we are ready and we can not wait to compete with top-level titans in Spain."
Titanium colors will be blue (primary), green (secondary) and white (accents), a combination that says the team is "Vancouver surrounded by the Pacific Ocean".
The Titans logo is distinguished by Sasquatch with a V-monogram in the nose for Vancouver and a mountain range at the top of the head.
"Titans' team name is an indicator of Sasquatch-related attributes-a powerful, intrusive and mythical being."
The Aquilini Group collaborates with Luminosity Gaming, a veteran of esports, to manage the team.
The team team includes former members of RunAway, a successful team for upgrading.
London won the inaugural championship in the league – and $ 1 million – in July, defeating Philadelphia 3-0 at the Barclays Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.J. Philadelphia collected $ 400,000 for the runner-up.
The league is the idea of the Overwatch Blizzard Entertainment programmer, whose game portfolio includes "World of Warcraft" and "StarCraft". Overwatch has more than 30 million players.
The league plans to continue its games at the Blizzard exhibition arena in Burbank, California, in 2019, with plans to establish games in the franchised cities in 2020.
