Digital Sporting Group Announce - EU / UK - Overwatch June Community Tournament.

Following the successful launch of our Overwatch PC esports program in Australia and Oceania, we are extremely pleased to now further announce the extension of this programme to also include Europe and the UK.

We are passionate about Overwatch and raising the overall profile of esports in general. With a greater competition comes larger viewership, greater sponsor interest, higher prize pools and a chance for the ‘dreamers’ to make a living from their passion.

Thus, the competition will be organised into 2 divisions initially for the EU / UK:

1) Open division – double elimination knockout. €800.00 prize pool. This competition will feature some of Europe's most promising up and coming teams.

a. The tournament will be run over 2 nights June 20th/21st from 8.00pm GMT.

b. The main matches will be casted -  with seeding and casting schedule to be determined. Watch on our Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/digital_sport

c. Sign up here: https://www.digitalsportinggroup.com/competitions/

d. The tournament will be 6 players per team with 1 sub.

2) EsportsW – Women's division (EU / UK). It is estimated that approximately 16% of the Overwatch player base is female (5 million players), double that of other FPS games: https://www.pcgamesn.com/over…/overwatch-female-player-count.

The fun art style, variety in gameplay, and ever-growing character roster attract more diversity compared to other FPS games. Despite the new approach, women still only make up 16% of Overwatch players worldwide and even less in Esports leagues. Our goal is to improve those figures with our EsportsW division.

EsportsW is for women who are new to Overwatch, only dabbled a few times, or are looking to step up their skills. We support players of all levels to develop strong skills and even stronger friendships with each other. Matches are evenly balanced for player skill level and a zero tolerance for any harassment policy will always be in effect.

Join us in growing the women's Overwatch community and showing the world how we play.

a. The Women's (EU/UK) division tournament is scheduled for 26th June. 

b. 6 players per team.
