As Overwatch announced in December, the Overwatch Path to Pro program has been significantly expanded for 2018. There will be three Overwatch Contenders seasons this year, with a total prize pool of more than $3 million USD to be won worldwide.
By embracing regional leagues and launching new ones, Overwatch Contenders is now operating in Europe, North America, South Korea, China, the Pacific region, Australia, and South America. To find out which teams are locked for 2018 Season 1, either through direct invitation or by purchasing a slot from an invited organisation, head to Overwatch’s new website, contenders.playoverwatch.com, and select a region.
