Seattle Surge

The Seattle Surge is the official Call of Duty League franchise team of Seattle, Washington, United States. It is owned and operated by Enthusiast Gaming and Canucks Sports & Entertainment.

The Surge identity has been developed to highlight the team’s connection to the Pacific Northwest, emphasizing on the area’s natural surroundings. Also known as a powerful and advancing movement, the word ‘Surge’ provides an imposing, intimidating team name off which the brand will be based.

The colors feature Midnight Blue (primary) and Pacific Blue (secondary), accented by Electric Turquoise and Grey. The colorway is representative of the area’s temperamental weather and its proximity to the rugged Pacific Ocean.

The logo makes further reference to an ocean force, by paying homage to the mythical God of Sea and Storms, Poseidon. Within the primary logo of a contemporary trident, the mark features Poseidon as a persona with the inclusion of turquoise eyes, and a subtle Seattle nod with the inclusion of the top of the iconic Space Needle which overlooks the Emerald City.
