The Overwatch League team names for Houston and London have been revealed, these being the Houston Outlaws and the London Spitfire.

The Outlaws, first of all, is the team run by OpTic Gaming, and the logo can be seen down below, alongside a trailer for the team. Alongside these reveals we also got to hear about the 10-man squad, filled with players from five different countries. The whole team, including management, is as follows:

Players:

● Austin 'Muma' Wilmot
● Matt 'Coolmatt' Iorio
● Shane 'Rawkus' Flaherty
● Lucas 'Mendokusaii' Håkansson
● Jiri 'LiNkzr' Masalin

"I'm incredibly excited to finally be able to reveal this roster, and I could not be prouder of the final result," said Outlaws General Manager Matt Rodriguez. "Every player has such a distinct personality, and all of them are pumped to be able to call each other teammates. The mindset and the attitude of the team have been inspiring thus far, and we will continue developing and promoting a winning mentality throughout the inaugural season of the Overwatch League and beyond for the city of Houston."

Then there's the London Spitfire, owned by Cloud9, which has been chosen as a name as "an homage to the iconic British aircraft used by the Royal Air Force. One of the heroes in Overwatch, Lena "Tracer" Oxton, was also a former RAF member in the game's lore," according to the press release.

"We're excited to represent London in the Overwatch League with the Spitfire," said Jack Etienne, Owner of Cloud9. "We've put together a fantastic team and are anxious to see them in action in the debut season of the Overwatch League early next year."

"London leads the world in creativity and cutting-edge technology and the city's games and esports industry plays a major part in that success," said Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London. "Good luck to all those representing the capital on the London Spitfire team in the Overwatch League."

We don't have a squad for the Spitfire yet, but we do have their logos, which you can see below. Which is your favourite team so far?
