Still Looking for More? Overwatch League has You Covered

Become your own professional with Overwatch League.

Late last year at BlizzCon Blizzard announced the formation of their own esports league with the creation of Overwatch League. This ambitious venture seeks to bring esports out of the small time and to the real heights of professional sports. Rather than gathering teams with players representing all corners of the world, Blizzard seeks to create regional teams who will compete for an entire season ending at the first ever Overwatch League World Championship.

With 2017 already in full swing, there’s hope to hear announcements sooner than later.
