The Dallas Fuel acquired Won-sik “Closer” Jung by transfer from the London Spitfire and have signed the South Korea born support player to a new two-year contract, the Fuel announced today. Closer is the eighth player named to the Dallas Fuel roster for the 2019 season of the Overwatch League and represents the team’s first offseason addition. Seven players from the 2018 Dallas Fuel roster were re-signed earlier this fall.
“We’ve had Closer on our radar for quite some time. He’s one of the most talented support players in Overwatch and obviously has great experience competing on the big stage, given his team’s runs in stage playoffs and Grand Finals last year,” said Aaron “Aero” Atkins, head coach of the Dallas Fuel. “We expect Closer to come in and be able to contribute to the Fuel immediately.”
The 20-year-old is among the top South Korean players in the Overwatch League and mains heroes Mercy, Lúcio and Ana in competitive play. Closer is also one of the few Overwatch players that can claim to be an Overwatch League champion, as he was one of only seven players active on the London Spitfire championship winning roster in the league’s inaugural season.
Closer began his professional esports career in Korea with MVP Space and found great success as a player for GC Busan, finishing in the top spots of APEX Season Four and at the APAC Premier.
Closer will join the Dallas Fuel in Los Angeles in the coming weeks and begin practicing with the team in the new Dallas Fuel training center. To learn more about Closer, follow him on Twitter at @Closer.
