Tuesday launches Media Day for the Overwatch League. Our very own Brandon Padilla will be on hand to get all the interviews and scoops from the teams the day before competition. We will be running up to date interviews and announcements all day as Brandon fires off the information so we can post it to fans as quickly as possible.

You will see a lot of interviews with owners, players, and top League reps to begin the full promotion. As teams organize and look to build their fans, the league has a journey to grow and expand esports across the globe.
