Philadelphia Fusion to Miss Preseason!
The Pre-season hasn’t even begun, and it appears the Overwatch League appears to already be facing problems. The Esports team the Philadelphia Fusion will be unable to participate in their planned Pre-season game, claiming “Logistic issues” involving players and team organisation.
(2/2) We apologize to our fans in Philadelphia & around the world who were looking forward to our preseason competition. Please stay tuned for news surrounding opportunities to connect with our team and win Fusion gear in advance of our season opener on January 11th.

While it is easy to see these issues as a bad omen in terms of the League’s beginning, it’s worth remembering that the format is only now making it’s debut, and team planning can run into issues as a recurring part of the industry.
For the preseason match the Fusions would have played, the San Francisco Shock will take their place, facing off against the Florida Mayhem. Replacement teams for subsequent preseason matches which may have featured the Philadelphia Fusion will be announced during the tournament.
