The off-season might just be the wildest in Overwatch League history.

10:51, 16 Oct 2020

The Overwatch League off-season is about to turn up the heat. Starting October 12, teams are allowed to re-sign existing player contracts and submit trades between Overwatch League teams to the League Office for approval. Extending contracts signed in 2020 needs to be done by October 16 (with 2019 contracts needing confirmation until November 13) with the real action starting on October 24 when teams are allowed to sign free agents. By January 4, every team is required to have signed at least seven players to their active roster. A lot will happen between now and then, but a lot of announcements have already been made.
