Washington's new esports team in the Overwatch League is out to bring justice to the District. The team announced its new name and logo, the Washington Justice, on Monday.
“Justice is a universal value and the perfect name for a franchise that we hope will inspire and united both our Washington area community and fans around the globe," said Mark Ein, the owner of the team, in a statement. "There is no region in the world that attracts more people to serve the cause of justice in our government, philanthropy, academia, military service and the private sector than Washington."

The team's logo is a shield with red and white stripes and a white star set on a blue background, which is meant as a nod to the American flag.
The Washington Justice will compete in the 2019 season of the league, which began as a 12-team league in 2018.
The team is one of eight additional teams competing in Overwatch next season. Competitors, according to the league's website, earn a minimum salary of $50,000 and are provided with housing, healthcare and retirement savings to allow them to compete in the first-person shooting game.
