Overwatch League Season One Grand Finals Sells Out Barclays Center

by Joe O'Brien


The Overwatch League Season One grand finals, taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, is sold out.

More than 20,000 tickets have been sold for the grand finals, which will take place at the Barclays Arena on July 27th-28th.


The grand finals will consist of a best-of-three series of best-of-five matches – the first team to win two best-of-fives will win the title.

Prior to the grand finals, the season one playoffs will consist of a six-team, single-elimination bracket, with each match-up also consisting of a best-of-three series of best-of-five matches. The top team from each Division will automatically qualify for the semi-finals, while the other four highest-placing teams will be seeded into the quarterfinals.


The teams competing in the playoffs have yet to be confirmed. The only guarantee so far is that New York Excelsior will take the number one seed, having locked in an unbeatable record in only the second week of Stage 4.

Beneath New York, only two matches separate second place from sixth currently, with current seventh-place Seoul Dynasty sat one match below that. As of now, the LA Valiant hold the top spot in the Pacific Division at a 23-12 record, trailed by the LA Gladiators at 21-15. The Valiant have five matches left to play, the Gladiators four.
