"We have been closely monitoring COVID-19 developments nationally and globally, and are in regular contact with our League partner regarding our planned Overwatch League event in Toronto next month. In partnership with Activision Blizzard — in the spirit of acting responsibly and with an abundance of caution for our players and fans alike — we have decided to cancel our Toronto Defiant Homestand that was scheduled for April 18-19 at Roy Thomson Hall.
While we are no longer going ahead with an exceptional live esports experience in Toronto in April, our organization is shifting focus to prepare for our live event in August, as we continue to tell our story and promote our players and Defiant brand to Torontonians and Canadians at large.”
