If you’re a fan of Overwatch and love the competitive side of the game, you’ll be interested to learn that Twitch has announced that they will now be streaming every single Overwatch League match on its platform, meaning that gamers now have a centralized platform in which they can stream the matches on.

According to Twitch, “That’s right; for the next two years, encompassing seasons one and two, Twitch will be the only place to watch regular-season, playoff, and championship Overwatch League matches — aside from Blizzard’s own site — with streams available in English, Korean, and French.”

They add, “We’re also working with Blizzard to develop new rewards for Overwatch fans, including exclusive in-game items. These, plus custom Overwatch League Cheermotes, will be announced when they’re available.” Gamers who are interested in checking out the matches will also be pleased to learn that the first match of the season will be kicking off tomorrow (11th of January), where we will see the San Francisco Shock go up against the Los Angeles Valiant.

As Twitch states, this is a deal between them and Blizzard and is expected to last for at least two-years, so in the meantime if you’d like to see what matches will be available for streaming, head on over to the Overwatch League website for the schedule.
