Last month we found out about seven owners in the Overwatch League, and now we know via a new press release from the competition that two more owners are now confirmed.
The two new owners include Jack Etienne of Cloud9, who is purchasing the team for London, while Stan and Josh Kroenke (owner of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche) will be purchasing a team for Los Angeles, which will in fact be the second team in the city.
"Building communities around the best competitive experiences in the world is incredibly rewarding, and the Overwatch League offers the chance to create something special," said Josh Kroenke. "We're impressed by the vision and strategy for the League, and we're going to build a great team for Los Angeles that inspires fans near and far."
"We applaud the creation of the Overwatch League, and couldn't be happier partnering with an organization that shares our values and vision of serving athletes, teams, and fans," added Etienne. "We are thrilled that Cloud9's formidable fan base throughout Europe and the UK now has a local team to call their own, and can't wait to start representing London in the Overwatch League."
Considering we also know the player salaries and regulations for the League, an idea of it is starting to take shape now with these new announcements. What other cities do you want to see get involved?
