The Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX) will be hosting one of its investors and partners, OverActive Media, who also oversees the Toronto Overwatch League team. The new Overwatch League team will have a prominent showing at the expo, where they will be showcasing the branding and players of the newly formed team. EGLX aims to be the largest in-person gaming event in Canada – a veritable E3 of the Great White North. As such, OverActive sees EGLX as the perfect place to reveal everything about the Toronto team.
Menashe Kestenbaum, CEO of Enthusiast Gaming, would state:
The creation of the Overwatch League is a significant milestone for the growth of the gaming industry. Esports is becoming a leading source of entertainment, not only for the gaming community but also for the entertainment industry. We are excited to partner with OverActive Media on its unveiling of Toronto’s Overwatch team and we look forward to partnering with and supporting the league among many other online and physical Esports initiatives within our 75 million visitor network.
Meanwhile, Chris Overholt, CEO of OverActive Media, says:
We are excited to partner with Enthusiast Gaming to showcase our new Overwatch team at EGLX this year. With 25,000 attendees at its last event, EGLX is the largest gaming Expo in Canada and has quickly become recognized as a leading Esports event worldwide. The Expo signifies the explosive growth of the video game industry and the impact Esports is having on the gaming and entertainment industries.
This news should not only be exciting for Toronto Overwatch League fans, but fans of the esport in general. There has been a ton of hype surrounding the possible lineup of the upcoming expansion team. Also, with General Manager Won “Jae” Jae-sun and Head Coach Lee “Bishop” Beom-joon, the excitement from the Toronto faithful is palpable.
