It wasn't long ago that we reported on the Overwatch League finals coming to Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and now Blizzard has revealed that the venue's largest esports event to date has sold out within two weeks of tickets being on public sale, meaning 20,0000 tickets have been snapped up since May 18.
"We knew the Overwatch League had amazing, enthusiastic fans, but this is something else," said Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer. "We're incredibly excited to play to a packed house at one of the world's premier sports and entertainment arenas. With the help of our broadcast team, our partners, and Barclays Center, we're going to put on a first-class show for everyone in attendance, and for the millions more who will be watching online."
If you need reminding, the finals will run from July 27 to 28, and this will crown the overall champion after the playoffs and all four stages have concluded. Did you expect it to be this popular?
