Uprising Academy is the academy team of the Boston Uprising in Overwatch Contenders.

The team is owned by Robert Kraft, Chairman and CEO of the Kraft Group. The team is managed and operated by Dramatik Gaming.

Timeline[edit]

  • November 22nd - nero and Shu are announced to have joined the Guangzhou Charge.[3]
  • November 28th - After playing one official game under the name Uprising Academy, the team officially announces it's new name, and its roster for Contenders Season 3. Klaus joins the team.[4]
