Blizzard has been putting a lot of work into the upcoming Overwatch professional league it introduced in 2016 and fans are excited. The company spent 2017 building it up, announcing teams based in large US cities, England, South Korea and China.
Then the publisher announced that it had formed a partnership with Twitch, which will broadcast every match of the first two seasons. That’s where you can catch it if you want to see the action.
Fans all over the world, except for those in China, can see the Overwatch League games live on Twitch. This includes playoffs and championship matches, with streams in English, French and Korean. It’s safe to say that fans will be glued to Twitch during these matches. This is a team up that benefits both companies. You can look forward to exclusive in-game rewards, likely in the form of jerseys like the ones recently released within Overwatch to promote the league.
Blizzard has been super busy promoting OWL over the past year, because it wants Overwatch to be a flagship eSports title. It has even added tools to improve the spectator’s experience and introduced an amateur league that will probably feed into OWL. These matches won’t cost anything to stream. If you want to watch the matches in person, you can do that too. Every game during the first season will be played at the new Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, which charges admission. This should be interesting to watch.
