Overwatch 2019 Season gets up and running tomorrow

And it's kicking off with a rematch of last season's final, with Philadelphia Fusion taking on 2018's champs, London Spitfire.

If you've been itching for more Overwatch League then you'll be delighted to hear that hostilities are set to resume tomorrow, February 15, with the 2019 Season kicking off in style with a re-run of last year's grand final featuring Philadelphia Fusion and London Spitfire.

With over $5 million USD in the prize pool, there's plenty to play for, which is quite possibly why there are 20 teams competing in the expanded competition.

"We've added eight new teams and nearly 100 new players to the Overwatch League, and we're really excited to see the influx of new talent and to see how teams approach the daunting task of winning the league championship," Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer said.

"Look for the quality of play to rise as the league continues to get even more competitive. The talents of our extraordinary players are going to be on display for the world to see. Come watch with the best of us!"
