The Overwatch World Cup 2017 is underway and the next live event is pretty close to NZ, taking place just over in Syndey 🙂 Running from July 21st through to the 23rd at the Star Events Centre it’s the second of four group stage qualifier events. Australia’s top 100 Overwatch players fought hard to get the 13th position in the pool of 32 qualified nations putting them into Group C where they will be competing against Sweden, Italy, and Portugal. The stage in Sydney will also play host to Group D, which will be a battle between Finland, Japan, Spain, and Vietnam.
Our recently elected NZ World Cup national committee have selected the New Zealand team which is assigned to Group G, with our live event set to take place in Burbank USA!
