Overwatch Contenders grand finalists Fusion University have their jerseys BANNED for being ‘too hot to handle’
- Fusion University have their initials on their jerseys, and it hasn’t gone down well
- The jerseys have been banned and the team had to play in plain black t-shirts
- Fusion University are in the grand finals of Overwatch Contenders later today
Later today, Philadelphia Fusion’s Contenders team Fusion University will be taking on Toronto Esports in the grand final of the North American Contenders Season 1.
But they’ll have to do it in black t-shirts after their official jerseys were banned by the tournament organisers yesterday.
The jerseys show Fusion University’s initials, ‘FU,’ which was deemed not suitable for use.
The jerseys in question. Fusion University used their initials, and the organisers aren’t pleased
The team posted a tweet saying ‘FU jerseys banned by @owpathtopro for possibly being too hot to handle. FU jerseys on sale soon.’
It sounds like they’re going ahead with that being their branding, despite the complaints.
The tweet also ended with the hashtag ‘#BAMF,’ a little dig at Overwatch itself using some questionable acronyms. The hero McCree has BAMF emblazoned on his belt buckle, and a quick Google search can tell you what that probably stands for.
Fusion University instead had to wear plain black t-shirts for their match against OpTic Academy yesterday. It appears they’ll have to do the same for their final later today.
The Overwatch League has been quick to hand out fines and punishments to those found breaking the rules. It remains to be seen whether any action will be taken over the FU jerseys.
Overwatch isn’t the only game to have some jersey controversy. Fans spotted a somewhat X-Rated kit in FIFA 18 this year.
