Fusion University was the academy team of Philadelphia Fusion in Overwatch Contenders from January 29th, 2018 until January 14th, 2020. At that point, they were disbanded and replaced by T1 as the Philadelphia Fusion's new academy team. On May 22nd, 2021, Fusion University announced they will be returning to Competitive Overwatch. The team will compete on the European ladder to accommodate the Philadelphia Fusion's European players on two-way contracts, due to Covid-related visa issues.
