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 would be returning to Competitive Overwatch. The team competed on the European Contenders ladder, in order to accommodate the Philadelphia Fusion's European players and staff on two-way contracts, due to Covid-related visa issues. During the 2021 Contenders season, the team disbanded once more.
