The Overwatch League Grand Finals will be coming to the Brooklyn borough of New York City this July according to a news post on the league's official website.
Now that we're well on our way into the home stretch of its inaugural season, the Overwatch League has announced the location of its Grand Finals matches: the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York City.
Once Stage Four of the Overwatch League concludes, the top teams from the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions, respectively, will be joined by the next four highest teams in the overall league standings for the playoffs at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles in Burbank, California. These six teams will battle it out from July 11 through July 21, 2018, ultimately resulting in two teams remaining to compete in the Overwatch League Grand Finals. These two teams will be shipped off to the Brooklyn borough of New York City to play in the Grand Finals.
The first match of the Grand Finals will be played on July 27, 2018, at 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The second (and third, if needed) matches will begin on Saturday, July 28, 2018, at 10:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time. The winning team will take home $1 million and second place will pocket a purse of $400,000, with a grand total of $1.7 million being split between the top six teams for the Championship matches.
Tickets for the playoffs can be picked up at AXS.com, and tickets for the Grand Finals in New York City can be grabbed at ticketmaster.com, barclayscenter.com, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
