Join us at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles on October 7–8

At the beginning of Overwatch Contenders Season One, we let you know that the top four teams at the end of the regular season from both North America and Europe would be competing in a live, offline playoff event to determine each region's supreme winner.

Today, we would like to announce that the Overwatch Contenders Season One Playoffs will be held on October 7–8 at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles. This event will be the first one hosted in this newly renovated space at the legendary Burbank Studios in Burbank, California, and will feature our top Contenders teams battling it out for their share of $100,000 USD per region.
