Overwatch League: Week One Fixtures & Schedule (International Timings)

The much-anticipated Overwatch League is about to kick off. The league seems to have been a long time coming. From the first mention of Blizzard’s ambitious plans to build a premier esport, fans of the game have had to wait well over a year, often without much high-profile competition to satisfy them in the mean time.

At last, the twelve teams of the inaugural season were announced, and their rosters confirmed, but even since then it’s been months of growing anticipation for the league to actually begin. The teams (with the exception of Philadelphia Fusion) made their debut in the pre-season near the beginning of December 2017, but the lack of stakes meant that fans are still holding their breaths to see these teams – some built around existing line-ups, some brand new – clash for real.

Finally, however, it’s about to begin. January 10th will see the very first official Overwatch League games, the start of a new era of the esport and a moment that many hope will mark the beginning of a long and successful story for Overwatch. Matches will take place every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday within each stage of the inaugural season. Three matches will be played on each day, and each match will consist of four maps - one of each game mode - and a tie-breaker Control game if needed in the event of a 2-2 split. The full schedule can be found on the Overwatch League website, but the following games will be featured in the first week of competition: x Wednesday, January 10th
