5 Deadly Venoms was founded in January 2018 on three core principles: community, charity, and love for New York. 5DV has been the original NYXL supporters since day 1. Between watchparties for our favorite team and casual meetups in the off-season, the crew supports local at-need neighbors through fundraising and clothing drives. Fully community-led and based in the Lower East Side, 5DV has welcomed friends from all over the world.
Lead. Act. Impact.
The 5 Deadly Venoms are proud to partner with University Settlement, one of New York's most dynamic social service institutions that has been around for over 130 years. University Settlement supports over 40,000 New Yorkers across all five boroughs through a variety of programs including adult literacy, youth support, senior programs, mental health services, and more.
We are the Lone Star Vanguard, a group of individuals across Texas sharing a common goal: to celebrate our love for nerd culture and embolden future generations through positivity! What started as five friends sitting down to view the inaugural season of The Overwatch League to root on the Houston Outlaws, now has active members in NY, AR, KY, CA, and TX. The LSV has become a community that welcomes all who are looking to find a friend with an open mind.
Dell Children's Hospital

Atlanta Royal Family was founded to bring all the fans and content creators of Atlanta Reign together to be more than the sum of their parts. At anytime, you can join other Reign fans for watch parties, casual meetups, community volunteer work, and more. From 3 people to over 300, the Atlanta Royal Family grew to be a cornerstone in the community covering Overwatch, Call of Duty, and volunteer initiatives across Atlanta.
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
Atlanta Royal Family is proud to partner with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, where the staff is specially trained to care for all children. For over 100 years, they have been completely dedicated to children. With a focus on supporting families, specialized equipment, and refined techniques, they tirelessly pursue providing the best possible care, and we are proud to help with this goal.
Toronto Alpha Flight was founded in January 2019 with the goal of unifying Toronto Defiant fans in the spirit of community building, charitable giving, and sharing a passion for the rich history of our city. The group hosts local watch parties and meetups in the GTA and has become a social hub for local Overwatch League fans. Proudly led by community members, Toronto Alpha Flight is also the first charter member of Toronto Defiant’s Official Fan Association, The Defiance.
St. Michael's Hospital Foundation
St. Michael’s Hospital was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1892 to care for the sick and poor of Toronto's inner city. Affectionately known as the Urban Angel, St. Michael’s is renowned for providing exceptional patient care.
Toronto Alpha Flight’s mission for Homefront 2019 is to build power charging stations for the waiting rooms in the St. Michael’s Trauma Unit. All too often members of our community are called into the Trauma unit and find themselves unable to contact friends and loved ones due to lack of power on their phones. With your help, we will be able to ensure that no one ever faces this type of challenge isolated or alone.
