Boston Uprising

“Boston has long had a reputation for challenging the status quo. It’s in this spirit that we are proud to announce the Boston Uprising, a name which evokes resilience and determination” 

Boston Uprising were one of the first teams to be announced for The Overwatch League. Owned by Robert Kraft, the CEO of manufacturing giants, Kraft, the team will represent Boston in the coming season.

They play in the Atlantic Division in a blue, black and yellow kit. Their original eclectic group of players featured talent from South Korea, North America and Europe.

They finished third overall in the first season of The Overwatch League, competing in the overall playoffs. Uprising was also the first team to have a 10-0 record during a whole stage in the league. This happened during Stage 3 on their way to the stage playoffs where they eventually lost to NYXL.
