Overwatch League Inaugural Season Begins Today

Overwatch – New Patch Introduces League Team Skins

That means for the next two years - covering seasons one and two of the league - Twitch will be the exclusive third-party host for regular-season, playoff and championship matches on its service.

A lot hinges on the Overwatch League's success, and their ability to keep viewers outside of the initial kickoff blast.

Week One will kick off with a match between San Francisco Shock and Los Angeles Valiant. The Atlantic Division teams take the stage at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles on Thursday.

"Connecting and engaging the world through epic entertainment is our mission", said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. "January 10th is an historic day for esports and we are so grateful to our team owners, our media partners, our sponsors, and most of all our players for their pivotal role in the establishment of the Overwatch League". "Given Overwatch's consistent reign as a top-viewed game by our community, we look forward to offering their pioneering style of league play to a large and passionate fanbase that will be able to bond over not only their favourite plays, but also hometown pride".

VentureBeat recently tweeted out that the popular broadcasting channel actually paid some big bucks in order to become the exclusive home of Overwatch League.

Plastic bag charge: 5p levy to be extended in England
The 25 year plan follows the Environmental Audit Committee's report into disposable coffee cups, which recommended a 25p levy. The plan, which is set to be published on Thursday, will reportedly include a consultation on the extension of the 5p charge.

The Overwatch League is the first major esports extravaganza to feature city-based teams, following a more traditional sports structure.

At BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard unveiled a brand new map coming to the team-based shooter Overwatch called "Blizzard World", which is a theme park inspired by the universes of other games from the publisher and developer. Fans can purchase tickets to attend matches, which will be played each Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
