From its schedule, to teams, and how to watch it, this is everything you need to know about the Overwatch League.

According to SportsBusiness, no such deal was in place as of January 3, which has "complicated" sponsorships for the League. There are 12 teams, split evenly into two divisions. San Francisco Shock owner Andy Miller says "it would have been easier to get sponsors if we could have said "this is our distribution partner" a month ago, but it is what it is". Honours that comes with a whole lot of green to the tune of $125 000 for the winners of each of the season's four five-week long stages, with a final overall Overwatch League Champion prize of a cool $1 million.

More details about insider content and additional rewards for the biggest fans, as well as Cheering with Overwatch League Cheermotes, will be announced as they become available. Broadcast teams for Korean and Chinese distributions of the event "will be announced soon". This in-game currency can only be used for Overwatch League skins.


When Does the Overwatch League Start? The first Stage is set as the inaugural season begins. Fans can buy skins of their favourite teams with League Tokens. Each divisions has six teams, mostly centered around their location in respect to the east and west coasts of the United States. After a heated preseason display, twelve professional teams from America, Britain, China and South Korea will now be going head to head for the official top honours in Blizzard's esports title. There are also exclusive interviews and videos to enjoy exclusively through the Overwatch League app, so it's a must-have for fans.

If you are new to esports don't worry you will catch on quick. The reason for its introduction into Overwatch is to clearly demarcate the profits for Blizzard and the league's teams. As you can tell, there are already three global teams from across the world in this first season, but that's just the beginning.
