The London Spitfire welcomes back Cheol-yong “Agape” Hong to their coaching staff. Before working with the London Spitfire, Agape achieved success with LW Red, reaching 1st place in IEM Gyeonggi and Overwatch APEX Challengers Season 4. He was also involved with LW Blue that went on to become the juggernaut New York Excelsior.

In his first run with the London Spitfire, he was an integral piece of the puzzle in achieving the Stage 1 championship of the Overwatch League. After he was let go by the Spitfire, he went on to coach Team BlossoM at South Korea.
Current London Spitfire GM, Susie “lilsusie” Kim made the following statement:
“Our current coaches have been working tirelessly for our team – the addition of Agape will help bring in a fresh perspective and energy to the team to help us finish strong in the Overwatch Inaugural season.”
Since winning Stage 1 of the Overwatch League, the London Spitfire did not reach the same success. The team placed 3rd in Stage 2 after being defeated by the Philadelphia Fusion in the Stage 2 playoffs. At Stage 3, they are struggling to reach 3rd place as they are currently at 9th place with a record of 1-3.
