OWL full list of teams for season 1
View:

Following earlier report by espn of optic obtaining Houston comes the news (also from espn) of the one more spot for the first owl season beeing Philadelphia now owned by Comcast Spectacor, the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers and sports branch of cable giant Comcast. According to sources blizzard is also pursuing Wesley Edens as an owner of chicago spot this would make 13 spots, one more then the minimum blizzard set for season 1 of overwatch league.

If these and earlier reportabout envyus byuing Austin-dallas spot become official we will know most of the teams for the first season of the overwatch league. It is set to start this year and take place in the newly open Blizzard Arena Los Angeles every Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

We now know every city for the first season only few of them have a roster and there is only one with, although rumoured only, name "Shanghai Dragons", also some time ago cloud 9 asked on twitter for help in naming its spot. According to blizzards rules every Overwatch League team is required to create new geolocated brand/name.

well, they aimed for 12-16 teams for season 1 (and they even set a final number of spots in owl for 28 read the thread i posted) and i didnt expect more then minimum for season 1 so i set it at that but maybe i was too pesimistic, well see

Also seems like the owner of Luminosity talked about a Toronto OWL spot ( not from him but from another investors)

So these are the final 12? I would like to see 4 more but I'm happy to start with these. Why Houston I wonder, if Dallas is already there? You would think another European spot would be better.

That would make 13, according to the article their goal was 14, but yeah, I'd like to see 16.

for now, we might see more depending prodably on how fast they can close a deal with blizzard but again blizzard is aiming to have 28 teams in owl so we have nearly half of all th teams that we will ever have in it (AGAIN more on it in my 2nd thread listed below article

I think it's probably because it would be much harder to travel around for home and away matches if they are located outside the U.S. Although the first season is set to take place in LA, it is likely to change. I don't think anyone knows exactly how it will be changed, but it seems like Blizzard is aiming to do home and away matches around the cities, which I think is crazy with the cities located all around the world. Perhaps, that is why not many groups outside U.S. are showing interest in securing a spot in the OWL.
