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.
