London Spitfire

“The Supermarine Spitfire was the name of a British fighter plane that was flown in the Royal Air Force, most famously during the Battle of Britain in World War II, and it is this spirit of bravery under fire that imbues the team’s identity.”

The London Spitfire are the only team representing the United Kingdom in The Overwatch League. The franchise is owned by Jack Etienne, founder and CEO of Cloud9 Gaming.

Tracer is obviously the mascot for the London franchise with the team playing in light blue and orange kits. They have an all-South Korean squad made up mostly of GC Busan and parts of Cloud9 KongDoo. They are the only team in The Overwatch League to have the maximum number of players for the next two seasons.
