The Academy Rosters of Seven Overwatch League Teams Have Been Revealed

The rosters of seven more Overwatch League Academy teams have been revealed. Eight Overwatch League teams are set to field Academy rosters in Overwatch Contenders, the next tier of competition beneath the OWL. Of those, seven will compete in Contenders NA, while London Spitfire, the only team in the league representing a European city, will have an academy team in Contenders EU.

So far, Philadelphia Fusion's academy team, Fusion University, is the only one to have officially confirmed its roster. In a recent report by ESPN, however, the rosters of the other seven Overwatch League academy teams have been revealed - although the report highlights that additional signings may yet be made. The teams feature players from a range of backgrounds, from Korean pros with APEX experience to the entire "Those Guys" squad, the winners of the latest Overwatch PIT EU, who will represent London Spitfire. The full rosters are expected to be revealed by Blizzard and the teams on Thursday February 15th and 11:00am PT. The next season of Contenders for both North America and Europe will kick off on March 5th.
