Overwatch League and Jeff Staples – who himself is a designer and streetwear powerhouse – brings you a first-of-its-kind collaboration in creating a reimagined, redesigned authentic player kit for esports. The new kits are designed in concert with Overwatch League player feedback for a look and feel unique to both traditional sports and esports. Elevated fabrics, premium graphic applications, new side gussets for adjustable comfort and a fit cut and sewn to increase quality and wearability while gaming.
Each of the 20 Overwatch League teams will have their own unique home and away kits for the 2020 season, launching 8 February Pacific Time.
“This first-of-its-kind collaboration is a great reflection of esports’ evolution into a true lifestyle. This is not just a win for the Overwatch League and our fans, but for esports as an industry.”
“We’re incredibly excited to be working with our friend and streetwear legend Jeff Staple on these team kits. Our players’ close partnership with Jeff can be seen and felt in the considered design elements included in the apparel. We cannot wait to see this gear worn on the streets of each of our Overwatch League team cities this season.”
Daniel Cherry, chief marketing officer at Activision Blizzard Esports
