About[edit]

Format[edit]

  • Preseason - December 6th - December 9th, 2017
    • The preseason kicks off with a series of livestreamed exhibition matches featuring all 12 teams at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles on December 6–9. After that, teams will have until Opening Day on January 10 to prepare themselves for competition.
  • Regular Season - January 10th - June 16th, 2018
    • Matches in the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions will play out live from the Blizzard Arena each Wednesday through Saturday. Though the season is divided into four stages, wins and losses will count towards teams' full-season records and all-important seeding for the postseason. On the last Saturday of each stage, the top teams will compete for hefty bonuses and the title of stage winner.
      • Stage 1 - January 10th - February 10th, 2018 [1]
      • Stage 2 - February 21st - March 24th, 2018
      • Stage 3 - April 4th - May 5th, 2018
      • Stage 4 - May 16th - June 16th, 2018
  • Postseason (Playoffs) - June 17th - July 28th, 2018
    • After Stage 4 finishes, top finishers in each division will prepare for the championship playoffs, which run from July 11–22. The grand final on July 26–28 will determine which team will be crowned the first Overwatch League champions, claiming glory, the Overwatch League trophy, and a USD $1 million bonus.
  • All-Star - August 10th - August 12th, 2018
    • After the rush of the inaugural season championship, the Overwatch League will kick back for a weekend of festivities as the community’s favorite players face off in unexpected challenges.

Transfer Window[edit]

The Transfer Window is defined as the period of time in which Teams can complete trades involving other Teams and/or sign new Players. The Transfer Window is the only time in which these changes can occur following October 30th, 2017.

  • The Free Agent Signing Period will open on January 22nd, 2018.
  • The Trade Window will open on February 11th, 2018.
  • Newly acquired players may be added to a team’s active roster beginning February 21st, 2018, the first day of Stage 2.
