Overwatch Contenders 2019 expansion announced

Let me start by giving a big congratulations to Sydney Drop Bears, proving again they are the dominant Overwatch squad in Australia. The finals series was hard fought by all but only one team could emerge victoriously.

But that’s not the only announcement for the Overwatch Contenders League, as the season expands to include a live inter-regional 2019 season. With the best teams from all eight regions of the Overwatch Contenders League going head to head in a live-streamed double-elimination event later this year.

Teams from Australia, China, Korea and Asia-Pacific will compete in the Pacific Showdown May 25 through 27. Teams from the two North American regions, South America and Europe will square off in the Atlantic Showdown the following week from June 1 through 3.

The Top regions will send their teams to an event dubbed The Gauntlet which will run from October 11 through 14 which will follow the end of the regular 2019 Overwatch League Season.
