Teams will have access to color themed skins in the gameplay which will make it easier to identify team members and be visually uniform as well. He said that the designers of the game had team jerseys in mind when they designed the concept.
Nanzer said that they will be issuing the skins for the twelve inaugural season teams as official Overwatch League skins. The players will be able to acquire these skins for any 26 heroes in the game. Each purchase of the skin by players will provide monetary support for the teams in the League.
