Philadelphia Fusion roster
Another mismatched roster, several Philadelphia Fusion members came from the FaZe Clan team but many are more scattered, including one with almost no history at all. The Korean members come from well-performing teams and several players were on their national squads, but it's an unproven batch that will be looking to perform against harder competition.
- Jae-hyeok ‘Carpe’ Lee, DPS, South Korea
- Josh ‘Eqo’ Corona, DPS, Israel
- George ‘ShaDowBurn’ Gushcha, DPS, Russia
- Hong-joon ‘HOTBA’ Choi, Flex, South Korea
- Gael ‘Poko’ Gouzerch, Flex, France
- Joona ‘Fragi’ Laine, Tank, Finland
- Su-min ‘SADO’ Kim, Tank, South Korea
- Due to account-boosting allegations, a violation of Overwatch League rules and Overwatch's EULA, Sado will not be participating in the first three stages - 30 matches - of Overwatch League season one.
- Isaac ‘Boombox’ Charles, Support, United Kingdom
- Jeong-hwan ‘Dayfly’ Park, Support, South Korea
- Joe ‘Joemeister’ Gramano, Support, Canada
- Alberto ‘neptuNo’ González, Support, Spain
This mixed nationality roster is supported by an equally diverse team, with head coach Yann ‘Kirby’ Luu hailing from France, assistant coaches Se-Hwi ‘NamedHwi’ Go and Elliot ‘Hayes’ Hayes from South Korea and the UK respectively, and analyst Ethan ‘Beezy’ Spector from the USA.
Philadelphia Fusion skins
Fusion should stand out in the games thanks to their striking orange and black colour scheme, which can also be seen on their merchandise. Here's their jersey and t-shirt:
Like all team jerseys and t-shirts, these are purchasable on the Blizzard gear store.
Philadelphia Fusion schedule
Due to "player logistics issues" Fusion pulled out of the preseason and were replaced by the San Francisco Shock. This means we have no idea just how good they are, though they aren't expected to be one of the high performing teams. Their first game against Houston will be a decent check, but Spitfire will be the ones to really test their quality - if Fusion can take out London, that will be a big surprise.
Season One - Stage One
- Thu Jan 11 @ 19:00 EST vs. Houston Outlaws
