17yr Old Overwatch pro player lands a $150,000 salary

0

North American Overwatch player Jay “sinatraa” Won recently signed a $150,000-per-year contract, reports ESPN. As a result, sinatraa will be earning $100,000 more than the league minimum’s annual pay, with revenue-sharing options available. He also happens to be 17-years young and a DPS player for Team USA in the Overwatch World cup 2017

The high salary came in the wake of a bidding war between two teams, NRG eSports and Cloud9. By the time the back and forth concluded, the offer on the table had risen by $50,000. NRG won the day, with sinatraa’s mother signing on his behalf (because he’s still a minor). The move sees him reuniting with former coach and Selfless Gaming co-owner Brad Rajani, who is now the head coach and manager of the NRG eSports Overwatch team. Neither sinatraa nor NRG have commented on the signing as of yet.
