Tickets now on sale for Overwatch World Cup Group Stage in Sydney

Posted on June 20, 2017

Blizzard’s golden child Overwatch can’t seem to take a wrong step in the gaming world. Its simplistic yet beautiful game design and format has millions of gamers (like myself) hooked and it grows from strength to strength with every new step it takes. So when Overwatch took that step into the world of competitive eSports it didn’t just creep in, it smashed its way in like Reinhardt with a hammer at last year’s 2016 Blizzcon and it’s dominated ever since!

Whilst Overwatch features in other eSports arenas, this will be the game’s second ever Overwatch World Cup. With contestants already skirmishing in hopes of making their way to the final stage at Blizzcon for the epic showdown, things are definitely in full swing. Our fan committee have chosen team Blank Esports to represent Australia and they are currently sitting in 13th position on the Overwatch World Cup ladder.
