Toronto reportedly getting Overwatch League team

And Splyce will operate it.

We already knew that the Overwatch League is expanding with Guangzhou and Atlanta teams, but now SportsBusiness Daily has reported that a Toronto franchise is now in the works as well, which will be sold to a group including esports organisation Splyce as well as investor Michael Kimel.

Splyce is allegedly partnering with OverActive Media Group to create a new ownership body, with Kimel and Westdale Construction providing extra capital. Splyce will operate the team and own a 10% stake, according to report, and the deal is likely to be finalised very soon, with the price expected to be around the $35 million USD mark.
