The Overwatch League formalized its plans for the 2019 Grand Finals, confirming location, dates and broadcast arrangements for this year’s event.

The 2019 Grand Finals will be livestreamed on Twitch in 190 countries, and broadcast in the US on ABC from 3p-6p in addition to carriage on the ESPN app, overwatchleague.com, and the Overwatch League app. Additionally, the Grand Finals will air in the following countries via additional platforms: Canada (TSN), China (Zhanqi, NetEase CC, Bilibili and Huya) France (Mediawan), Germany (Sport1), and Russia (E Terra TV).
“Philadelphia is a legendary sports town with amazing fans and the Wells Fargo Center is the perfect venue to crown our next champion,” said Nate Nanzer, Overwatch League Commissioner. “The 2018 Grand Finals in Brooklyn was epic but we’re looking to up the ante for our season finale in Philly. We have 20 teams in the League now, so the path to the championship is going to be extremely competitive and very entertaining.”

POWER PLAYER – Robbie Douek

After making its first-ever stop stateside in Miami, BLAST Pro Series now has eyes on LA, locking in partnerships and teams for July 13 at the USC Galen Centre in Downtown Los Angeles. The company, owned by RFRSH Entertainment which also owns Astralis, now has eyes to go deeper in the years ahead for the global CS:GO tournament circuit that this year saw a new tournament format – one global series with seven of the best teams in the world, seven live tournaments in seven international venues with a total prize pool of $2.25 million. Cynopsis Esports asked Robbie Douek, President & CCO at RFRSH Entertainment, about the companies experiences and plans moving forward.
Douek on the US market: US is the biggest entertainment market in the world and also a main market for esports and CS:GO specifically. Being a cross over between world-class live arena entertainment and esports of the highest caliber combined with our ambition to become the most entertaining and the most watched live esports tournament in the world, the US market is a natural next step for us. Presenting this kind of show and tournament to the US audience is something we’ve been looking much forward to, and the way we were welcomed in Miami tells us, we’re on the right track. It was an amazing show in Florida last month!
On takeaways from Miami: We were reminded that US is a different and very quality aware market. The audience and partners are used to big shows, which keeps us on our feet, but we were also reaffirmed that what we do is on par with the very best of live entertainment out there. The Miami show was broadcast online to millions on Twitch and the tournament was broadcasted on TV channels in more than 130 countries worldwide. Even if the time zones can be a challenge, we actually secured a record audience online, and a main takeaway is definitely that the concept of world class live entertainment combined with the very best esports has to offer is a winning one.
On hitting LA:  What you can always expect from BLAST Pro Series is some of the best esports has to offer and a live event second to none in regards to entertainment, massive digital and audio stage set-up for a riveting competition format, fans who love to show their love for the players and teams and an audience engagement that is really something special. On top of this we have entered our first Music Partnership with a major rock band; Asking Alexandria. This alone will give a new dimension to the show and live experience.
On challenges: Velocity and going Global. We have scaled fast, with strong offices in Copenhagen and London and this year tournament operations in different continents. Our teams are constantly on the move competing around the world and we have already hosted tournaments in Sao Paulo, Miami and Madrid with LA just around the corner. it’s certainly been a great test for our operations in 2019 and as we scale into 2020. We have hired accomplished and seasoned professionals from the world of Sports and Entertainment that take these challenges in their stride. I can’t praise the team enough for their amazing hard work and dedication. It’s the making of our amazing company.
On growth: BLAST is well known in certain geographies and our teams have footprint in others, we want that Global presence for all our IP. We want to make sure that fans around the world can experience the pure adrenaline and premium nature of BLAST Pro as well as get the chance to meet and learn from Astralis or Origen. I am personally very interested in how eSports continues to become more mainstream and how brands and consumers are embracing it around the world. It’s so exciting to watch that.
