Brace yourselves, Overwatch fans; Blizzard has released the complete Overwatch League 2019 regular season schedule!
You can now buy tickets or prepare for all regular season matches, which will be played at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles. The Overwatch League 2019 Opening Day happens on February 14, 2019; featuring a rematch between defending champion London Spitfire and Philadelphia Fusion.
The Overwatch League 2019 season will arrive with several new additions, including the introduction of Homestand Weekend events. Three teams – Dallas Fuel, Atlanta Reign, and Los Angeles Valiant – will host regular-season matches in their respective territories to give fans their first taste of live professional Overwatch before all teams officially move into their home venues. Tickets for Homestand Weekend events will be put on sale by the respective individual teams at a later date.
Besides that, the Overwatch League 2019 season will also feature a revamped playoff structure and end-of-season format, where the top six teams will automatically qualify for the postseason, with the Atlantic and Pacific Division winners receiving top seeds. Two final playoff spots will be decided via a play-in tournament in August, which will feature teams that finished seventh through twelfth in the overall standings, with the top two teams from this tournament advancing to the postseason. This play-in tournament will replace the Stage Finals at the end of the league’s fourth and final stage.
The Overwatch League prize pool will also increase from $3.5 million to $5 million in 2019. Fans will have to wait until next year for specific dates, formats and other details for the All-Star Weekend, playoffs and Grand Finals.
All Overwatch League 2019 matches will be broadcast on OverwatchLeague.com, Twitch, and MLG, with select matches set to be broadcast across the ESPN / Disney XD / ABC family of networks.
In the meantime, check out the first two weeks of the Overwatch League 2019 schedule. Keep in mind that all times shown are in Pacific Standard Time (PST), especially for fans outside of the U.S.
