EGLX in Toronto, Canada is underway and the newly revealed Toronto Defiant Overwatch League team is a big part of the action. Some of the team’s players will be revealed on Saturday on the mainstage at EGLX and live on Twitch around the world. With the brand recently revealed on October 24, we’re about to learn more about what to expect from the Canadian team this Saturday and we have the details on where to catch it all!
At 2:30PM EST on Saturday, October 27, 2018, the Toronto Defiant Overwatch League team is set to take the Bell Fibe Stage in Hall D of the Metro Toronto Convention Center.

The Toronto Defiant will be showcasing at least a few of its players, though perhaps not all of them just yet. Beoumjun “Bishop” Lee was already revealed as the head coach, supported by General Manager Jaesun “Jae” Won, Assistant Coach Yun “Bubbly” Ho Cho, Strategic Coach Dongwook “Don” Kim and Analyst Dennis “Barroi” Matz. With the behind-the-scenes folks all in place, Saturday should be illuminating as to the players in the heat of the action.
Teams like France and Atlanta have also recently revealed their own Overwatch branding and rosters. That said, Toronto may be one of the more lavish showings of the bunch with the EGLX event as a host to the reveal. Whoever we get to see come out on Saturday, Toronto seems excited and ready to welcome the Defiant roster for Overwatch League 2019.
