The Overwatch League returns for its second season in less than a week, so fans may be wondering when and where they can catch the action.
Games will be played Thursdays to Sundays with individual match times looking a little different from Season 1 to better accommodate a global audience. On Thursdays and Fridays, the first game will start at 4 p.m. PT with the other three matches of each day following every hour and a half. Saturdays and Sundays will see a similar time format with matches starting at 12 p.m. PT.
Three of the games from the Opening Week will be broadcast on the ESPN/Disney XD/ABC family of networks. The match between the Hangzhou Spark and the Shanghai Dragons will be broadcast on Feb. 14 at 8:30 p.m. PST, followed by the match between the Houston Outlaws and the Boston Uprising on Feb. 17 at 12 p.m. PST. To wrap up the week, the match between the Philadelphia Fusion and Atlanta Reign will be broadcast Feb. 17 at 1:30 p.m. PST.
To celebrate the league before it starts, the Overwatch League is hosting a Community Countdown from Feb. 9 to Feb. 13. During the event, teams will compete in rivalry-building scrims and 1v1s. Select members from the Overwatch streaming community will face a few individuals from the league’s broadcast talent in a Showdown to wrap up the event.
The Community Countdown will be streamed by community streamers on Twitch, but the final match of the event will take place Overwatch League Twitch and MLG channels.
