The first regular season in the Blizzard-created Overwatch League is going to begin on January 10, with preseason exhibition matches scheduled to start December 6. The Overwatch League represents one of the first attempts to bring a traditional sports league-like model to esports.
All of the regular season games are being held at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles, which will be used for hosting and viewing matches. The season runs through June and playoffs/finals are scheduled for July.
The Overwatch League has also received three more teams representing Philadelphia, Dallas, and Houston. With those additions, the league has reached its target of 12 teams.
