“We are thrilled to be celebrating the launch of the Toronto Defiant today in the best way
we know how, side-by-side with our fans,” said Chris Overholt, President and CEO, OverActive
Media Group Inc. “We have a clear vision to build a world-class professional esports
company in Toronto that will excite and inspire a new generation of fans in our market,
across Canada, and around the globe.”

The Toronto Defiant will also be operated by North American esports organization Splyce, who has participated in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, Overwatch, Rocket League, and more.
