Florida Mayhem, hailing from the sunny south of North America’s eastern coast, will make their first appearance as part of the Overwatch League’s opening season. They’re one of six teams that make up the Atlantic Division, and here’s everything we know about them.

Florida Mayhem team information
- Owners: Ben Spoont
- Ben Spoont is the CEO and co-founder of UK-based esports team Misfits, which has teams across a variety of games including League of Legends and CS:GO. They already have a solid track record in competitive Overwatch, which should mean Mayhem are a team to watch out for in the League.
- Division: Atlantic
- Social links: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube
Florida Mayhem roster
All six members of Florida Mayhem hail from Misfits, and considering the successes the team has already had in Overwatch, this should mean they’re in a solid position to secure some victories. They were also all on their respective national teams for the 2017 World Cup, with the Swedes taking third place.
- Kevyn ‘TviQ’ Lindström, DPS, Sweden
- Andreas ‘Logix’ Berghmans, DPS, Belgium
- Tim ‘Manneten’ Bylund, Flex/DPS, Sweden
- Johan ‘CWoosH’ Klingestedt, Tank/Flex, Sweden
- Sebastian ‘Zebbosai’ Olsson, Support, Sweden
- Aleksi ‘Zuppeh’ Kuntsi, Support, Finland
Acting as head coach for the team is Vytis ‘Mineral’ Lasaitis, but beyond that there is currently no additional support for Mayhem. This makes them one of the League’s smaller teams, but certainly not one to ignore.
Florida Mayhem skins
Reflecting the sunshine state from which the Miami and Orlando team hail, Florida Mayhem’s team colours are vibrant yellow and red, with a little black. It’s a good look for Reaper, we are sure you will agree. Here's their jersey and t-shirt:
Like all team jerseys and t-shirts, these are purchasable on the Blizzard gear store.
Florida Mayhem schedule
Mayhem went 0-2 in preseason, and they don't have an easy time of it at the start of the main event either. Dallas and the SF Shock proved too much for them in the first stage, and they're heading straight for an impact with Spitfire and then Dynasty two matches later in season one. That's a harsh start for anyone, and if they can escape with wins they'll be looking great - but it's not likely based on their preseason performance.
Season One - Stage One
- Thu Jan 11 @ 17:00 EST vs. London Spitfire
- Fri Jan 12 @ 21:00 EST vs. Boston Uprising
- Wed Jan 18 @ 21:00 EST vs. Seoul Dynasty
- Fri Jan 19 @ 21:00 EST vs. Shanghai Dragons
- Thu Jan 25 @ 21:00 EST vs. Houston Outlaws
- Fri Jan 26 @ 21:00 EST vs. Los Angeles Valiant
- Wed Jan 31 @ 21:00 EST vs. Los Angeles Gladiators
- Fri Feb 2 @ 19:00 EST vs. San Francisco Shock
- Thu Feb 8 @ 19:00 EST vs. New York Excelsior
- Sat Feb 10 @ 18:00 EST vs. Philadelphia Fusion
Stage one title matches will be that last week on Saturday, February 10 at 20:00 or 22:00 EST - likely the earlier slot as that is the purpose of the Atlantic Division. Given Mayhem and Misfits’ history in Overwatch, it's very possible they'll be involved.
