BlizzCon is bringing esports to Anaheim again in November

Including an opening week that fans can attend.

  • Text: Sam Bishop

Blizzard has just announced that BlizzCon will be returning to the Anaheim Convention Center on November 2 and 3, and that fans can buy tickets on two separate dates, these being May 10 and May 12, so mark those on your calendars if you want to go and witness esports action.

The opening week of BlizzCon will see the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles host the StarCraft II World Championship Series Global Finals' opening rounds between October 25 and 29, as well as the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship Finals, and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship Finals. These competitions will then culminate at the main event in Anaheim, alongside the Overwatch World Cup and Hearthstone Global Games.

"BlizzCon is our favorite time of the year at Blizzard," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "It's our chance to meet and really get to know the people behind the terran commanders, demon hunters, and Tracer mains we play with every day—to share our passion for games and esports with each other, and celebrate what being in the Blizzard community is all about. We can't wait to see everyone at the show."

Fans can attend the opening week in person, as a limited number of tickets to these events at the Blizzard Arena will go on sale later this year, with more details being announced in the future. For more on BlizzCon in general though, be sure to visit the official website.
