London and Philadelphia to compete in Overwatch League Grand Finals
There, they’ll face number five-seed London, who upset the Pacific Division-winning Los Angeles Valiant on Friday night, taking the best-of-three series 2-0. Our champions have both come from the lower-tiers of the bracket in decisive upset victories
to snatch the championship from the others.
The great reveal
To purposefully add to the hype, Blizzard had a surprise following the Philadelphia-New York semifinal. In dramatic fashion, the Overwatch League’s championship trophy—inspired by Reinhardt—was presented Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan. London and Philadelphia can now picture themselves holding up something physical, all the more incentive to fight tooth and nail.
Wondering when to tune in for the finale? The first match is scheduled for 1:00 CEST on Saturday, July 28. That match will be live-broadcast on ESPN and will be on Twitch. See the full broadcast schedule for more details on match times.
If you’re watching the games but haven’t tried Overwatch for yourself, Blizzard is making the game free to play on PC during Overwatch League’s Grand Finals week. That means that you can try the game out for free on Battle.net from Thursday, July 26 through Monday, July 30. You can visit TryOverwatch.com for more information.
