Boston Uprising skins
Uprising have adopted a striking blue and yellow colour scheme for their team uniform, which bares a little resemblance to Torbjorn’s Tre Kronor skin. Here’s a look at their jersey and t-shirt:
Like all team jerseys and t-shirts, they're purchasable on the Blizzard gear store.
Boston Uprising schedule
Boston Uprising went 1-1 in preseason, losing to the New York Excelsior but taking down the Shanghai Dragons. They performed better than expected given a low-power roster, but didn't dominate in their victory. Their loss wasn't wholly embarassing either though, and taking a map and several rounds off a team as strong as Excelsior isn't easy. They're not a favourite to take down their division or the whole league, but won't be a pushover either.
