In preparation for their inaugural season in the Overwatch League, Toronto’s new esports team is giving fans a glimpse of the Beverly Hills mansion they’ll call home during the season.

The Toronto Defiant begin league play on February 15, 2019, as one of 20 teams spread across three continents.

Most matches will take place at a centralized location at Blizzard Arena in Burbank, California, though the league plans to have games hosted in different cities in the future. Toronto will travel to Atlanta on July 6 in one of just three away games.

The 28-game season stretches from February 15 to August 18.

This is the second season of the Overwatch League, which pays gamers a minimum of $50,000 USD a year. Many players earn six-figure salaries playing the first-person shooter game.

The eight gamers that make up the Toronto Defiant – most well known as Envy, Neko, Ivy, Yakpung, Aid, Stellar, Asher and RoKy – will live in a ‘Team House’ in Beverly Hills during those four stages.

The mansion has eight bedrooms, complete with a basketball court and outdoor pool.

Some renovations will be made to the house before the gamers move in, including a touch of Toronto branding plus a bunch of tech and computer equipment.
