For around $20 million each, Philadelphia and Houston are the next two locations Blizzard has secured for the Overwatch League, according to an ESPN report.

Comcast Spectacor, the same firm that owns the Philadelphia Flyers will be in charge of the Philadelphia based team, while OpTic Gaming and Texas Rangers co-owner Neil Leibman will take the Houston squad.

This brings the number of teams in the Overwatch league to 13, leaving one remaining spot. Rumour has it that Wesley Edens, co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, is being offered a spot in Chicago, but that's yet to be confirmed.

Where do you want the final team to be located?
