"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.
