After the exciting news about the Overwatch League, many people were interested in going into the esports world, and those do not include only the fans of the game. There are many investors and even teams from traditional sports.
As we are getting closer to the Overwatch League’s inaugural season, the fans expect more of these clubs to buy their way into the OWL, and it looks like Reunited, which is currently one of the top Overwatch rosters in Europe are already discussing terms with teams from a variety of different leagues.
Frederik Kragh Christensen, who is the manager and founder of Reunited confirmed that they have been talking with teams from some of the major leagues. He stated that since they are one of the best OW teams in the world, they have to do everything they can to get into the Overwatch League. Frederik also confirmed that they still have not sealed the deal with any of the teams they have met with, and Reunited remains open for other offers if any other clubs are interested.
Blizzard has not announced any details about the Overwatch League, the comment Christensen made that Reunited cannot make it into the OWL on their own, implies that there is a buy-in required.
However interesting this all sounds, Reunited are certainly not the first ones to be bought in. The Philadelphia 76ers purchased Apex Gaming and Team Dignitas, not to mention that Schalke also bought themselves into the League Of Legends LCS. The most recent news that Paris St-German also announced their entry into the esports and even snatched Fnatic’s support Bora Yellowstar Kim as their brand new esports manager.
