The 2018 Overwatch World Cup Continues on September 7-9 with the Los Angeles Qualifier.

The second of four group stages for this year’s World Cup, the Los Angeles Qualifier will see six national teams fighting for just two spots in the playoffs at Blizzcon, November 2-3.

The first qualifier took place in Incheon, South Korea, where the host nation and reigning World Champions claimed their place, alongside Finland.

The LA Qualifier, which will be held in the Overwatch League arena, might be the most anticipated of the four, as it will feature the first official clash of this year’s World Cup between the United States and Canada.

To spice up the national rivalry even further, the LA Gladiators, LA Valiant, and Houston Outlaws each have players on both sides, while the Dallas Fuel are providing the head coaches for each. Fuel head coach Aaron ‘Aero’ Atkins is leading the USA, while assistant coach Justin ‘Jayne’ Conroy directs team Canada.

Here’s everything you need to know to catch all of the action at the Los Angeles Qualifier.
