Where to watch Sydney’s Overwatch World Cup event online
Cheer our Aussie players on this weekend as they go up against the best Overwatch players in the world.
The second stage of the Overwatch World Cup has kicked off in Sydney today, with 8 of the top 32 national Overwatch teams competing to make it to the finals at BlizzCon later this year. The event will run from today through the weekend for a total of 21 hours of top-tier shooting action.

Our homegrown Aussie team will be taking on teams from Portugal, Sweden and Italy, while Finland, Japan, Spain and Vietnam will duke it out amongst themselves. If Australia can topple the competition, our team will go on to play in a single-elimination playoff round against the three other winners in our region, and hopefully from there to the finals of the Overwatch World Cup at BlizzCon in Anaheim, USA, on 3 November this year.
