The San Francisco Shock are the 2019 Grand Champions of the Overwatch League. They won in dominant fashion over the Vancouver Titans with a 4-0 sweep in the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.

The 2019 season started with Vancouver going 19-0 and taking the stage 1 championship. However, the Shock took stage 2 while also having the longest map victory streak (28-0) in Overwatch League history. Both teams battled it out for the top spot in the league all season.

The Shock were the #3 seed in the playoffs, while the Titans were the #1 seed. After being upset by the Atlanta Reign in the first round, San Francisco came roaring back and swept each team on their path to victory.

The Shock not only took home the trophy, but an additional $1.1 million in prize money. Next season the Overwatch League takes the show on the road with each team hosting two homestands each. Season three of the Overwatch League begins in February 2020.
