T-Mobile’s branding is no longer available to find on the Overwatch League and Call of Duty League websites. This comes after a recent lawsuit against Activision-Blizzard alleges sexual harassment and a “frat boy” working environment.
Dexerto reports that T-Mobile’s branding was last seen on the OWL website on July 27th. Meanwhile, T-Mobile’s logos have not been viewable on the Call of Duty League website since July 21st.
T-Mobile’s branding was also removed from the jerseys of the New York Subliners. This team has competed in the Call of Duty League since 2019.
The Profit‘s Take:
Activision Blizzard’s franchised leagues are already struggling. It’s possible that this loss of a major sponsor could be the push needed to make both leagues revisit their structures and economics, and put them on a sustainable path. However, it’s more likely that this will cause other sponsors to pull out and management is too clueless to make the necessary changes.
