Pin it

Votes for the Overwatch World Cup Competition Committees have been tallied and the results are now live at worldcup.playoverwatch.com. On Thursday, April 27, players were given an opportunity to vote for their country’s representatives to form each Competition Committee, which is responsible for selecting and recommending the strongest team from that nation. You can download the document here for the full list of committee members for all 32 countries.

We’re also excited to announce the groups and city locations for the four live events in which the group stages will be played out this Summer. Each group is comprised of four national teams that will play a full round-robin series of matches. From each group, the top two teams will advance to the single-elimination playoffs. The top two finishers from each of the four group stage events will qualify for the Overwatch World Cup finals at BlizzCon 2017. Venue, dates, and ticket information will be announced soon.
