The Grand Finals is the culmination of the Overwatch League’s inaugural season, which kicked off with the first regular-season matchup on January 10. Play has continued over four thrilling stages since then, each capped by a Stage Finals. The Stage 4 Finals are scheduled for June 17, and will be followed by the Overwatch League Playoffs, from July 11–21, at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, in Burbank, California. Tickets to all remaining regular-season matches and playoffs are now available on AXS.com.
During the playoffs, six teams will battle to punch their ticket to Brooklyn and Barclays Center. The two teams that reach the Grand Finals will compete for the honor of winning the league’s inaugural championship, for a share of the USD $1.4 million prize pool, and for the Overwatch League trophy.
The final two teams will face off at Barclays Center in a best-of-three series, with the winner being the first team to win two best-of-five matches. The first match will be played on Friday, July 27, at 7 p.m. EDT. The second—and third (if necessary)—matches will start Saturday, July 28, at 4:30 p.m. EDT.
