Washington Esports Ventures was founded to purchase an Overwatch League team and build other esports teams that will represent the thriving Capital Region incorporating all of Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia—from Baltimore to Richmond. The company is led by Mark Ein, a Washington-area businessman, civic leader, philanthropist, sports team owner, and native Washingtonian. Mark and his ownership group believe in the power of sports as a platform to inspire people and bring communities together. The Company's esports assets, including the Overwatch League team, will be part of Mr. Ein's existing sports platform that owns the Washington Kastles, one of the most successful teams in the 45-year history of World Team Tennis, embraced by the Capital Region since its founding in 2008 and the Citi Open, a celebrated annual tennis tournament and one of DC's longest-standing sports traditions.
