Today, the Overwatch League announced its Grand Finals will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn — home of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and NHL’s New York Islanders — on July 27 and 28.
The Overwatch League postseason begins with six of the best teams pinned against each other to garner one of two spots at the Grand Finals. The winners of the Playoffs will head to Barclays Center in a best-of-three series; the action will commence on July 27 at 8 pm Eastern with the last two matches ending the inaugural season on July 28 at 4 pm Eastern.
Overwatch League commissioner Nat Nanzer describes the Grand Finals as an “epic experience for fans and viewers” and having the event at Barclays Center 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.”
Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment CEO Brett Yormack also expresses his excitement for the event stating, “we are thrilled to host the inaugural Overwatch League Grand Finals” and that they “anticipate drawing a dynamic international audience to experience the event live in July.”
Two-day tickets will be available for the event via Ticketmaster and the Barclays Center’s official website on May 18 at 10 pm Eastern; you’ll also be able to pick up tickets at the American Express Box Office on May 19 at 12 pm Eastern. One-day tickets will be available at a later date.
