Toronto OWL appear to be all business with a clear goal of going for the Grand Finals in their inaugural Overwatch League Season. They have signed former London Spitfire coach Beomjun ‘Bishop’ Lee. As most know, the London Spitfire were the Grand Finals champions in OWL Season 1.
Bishop was not the Spitfire coach during their Grand Finals run. He was released from his contract last March, after winning OWL Stage 1. Bishop was with Cloud9 as they transitioned over to the London Spitfire. He has experience with both Korean and North American players, therefore we will likely see a mixed Toronto team.
Toronto OWL have also signed Jaesun ‘Jae’ Won, the former head of North American Player Management & Partnership Relations for Splyce. Jae will be Toronto OWL’s General Manager in charge of roster management.
The Toronto OWL team is owned by OverActive Media which is an investor of team Splyce.
Last week Toronto OWL announced they have brought on CEO/President Chris Overholt. Chris has an extensive resume as Canada Olympics top executive, with additional experience in the NHL, NBA and NFL.
