San Francisco Shock Crowned 2020 Overwatch League Grand Finals Champion

The San Francisco Shock became the first team in Overwatch League history to win back-to-back championships, as the team defeated the Seoul Dynasty 4-2 to win the 2020 Overwatch League Grand Finals.

Last year, they also won the 2019 Grand Finals when they took down the Vancouver Titans.

Nam-joo “Striker” Kwon helped lead San Francisco to the title, thereby earning himself the 2020 Grand Finals MVP for his performance with heroes Tracer and Hanzo. He joins his teammate Hyo-bin “ChoiHyoBin” Choi, who was named Grand Finals MVP back in 2019.

The match was broadcast live on YouTube, Bilibili, Huya, Netease CC, and the official website OverwatchLeague.com, where millions of fans were treated to a special online broadcast showcased on a virtual stage.

Fans appeared on-broadcast cheering for both teams on the T-Mobile Skybox, and their voices were heard through a “Cheer from Home” feature. Viewer rewards, including a special in-game Tracer skin and spray, were given to fans who linked their accounts while tuning in.

A special re-broadcast will air on YouTube and OverwatchLeague.com at 12pm PDT today (or 3am GMT+8 on Tuesday, 13 October 2020 for Southeast Asian fans). As an added incentive, viewer rewards will still be awarded to fans who watch the special re-broadcast.

Blizzard Entertainment Overwatch Esports Vice President Jon Spector said:

“I’m proud of the entire Overwatch League staff around the world who worked incredibly hard to put on a great show for our fans.

Thank you to all four teams who competed this week as part of our 2020 Grand Finals, and congratulations to our winners, the San Francisco Shock.

We steadily built momentum through a challenging 2020 season, and early results today are pointing to this event having the best viewership of the season.

See you in 2021!”

While the 2020 Overwatch League season has come to an end, roster construction for 2021 will begin today on 12 October 2020. Other details on how player movement will work this offseason will be revealed later this month.
