Overwatch Contenders

Introducing Overwatch Contenders – the development league for aspiring Overwatch League™ professionals, kicking off in summer 2017 in North America and Europe. Season Zero of Overwatch Contenders will be an open signup, online-only tournament with a USD $50,000 prize pool per region. The top teams of Season Zero will then be invited to Overwatch Contenders Season One, where the offline playoffs will award USD $100,000 per region.

Of course, there is more than cash on the line—with organizations looking to fill their rosters for the launch of the Overwatch League, all eyes will be watching this summer’s competitive showcase.
