Since kicking off in March, Overwatch Contenders Australia, the official path-to-pro for Overwatch in the region, has built on the amazing success of Team Australia at the World Cup Sydney Stop in 2017.
Over the course of the first season, we have seen some world-class Overwatch from our 12 teams, along with the development of a passionate and vocal fanbase. With the regular season complete, it’s now time for the inaugural playoffs.
Dark Sided, Sydney Drop Bears, Blank Blue and Masterminds GC will be fighting for the right to call themselves the first Overwatch Contenders Australia champions, and take the lion’s share of the $50,000 USD prize pool.
Fans will be able to tune in on Saturday 19 May AEST as each of the four teams go head-to head in their elimination matches live from ESL Studios Sydney.
The first semi-final will see Dark Sided taking on the Sydney Drop Bears from 11AM AEST, followed by Blank Blue versus Masterminds GC. Finals will be held directly after the winner of the second semi-final is determined.
