The Grand Finals for the inaugural Overwatch League will be held in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, from July 27th–28th, 2018.
Following the end of the season, the top six teams will meet at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles in Burbank, California on July 11th to determine the two teams that will head to New York to do battle for a share of the $1.4 million prize pool.
“The Overwatch League Grand Finals will be an epic experience for fans and viewers,” Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer said. “We want this to be the pinnacle of esports, and holding it at a world-class venue like Barclays Center, in a global capital like New York, will help us celebrate not only the league’s two best teams, but the fans, partners, and players who have joined us on this incredible journey.”
“We are thrilled to host the inaugural Overwatch League Grand Finals, as we are quickly becoming a marquee destination for global esports leagues,” Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, added. “This past year, the Overwatch League became the breakout league in the sports industry, and we anticipate drawing a dynamic international audience to experience the event live in July.”
Tickets to the two-day Grand Finals will go on sale on Friday, May 18th and can be purchased on the Ticket Master and Barclays Center websites. Tickets can also be purchased in person at the American Express Box Office at the Barclays Center from Saturday, May 19th.
