The Overwatch League kicked off last week at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, with four days of competition between all 12 teams of the world’s first major global city-based professional esports league.

Opening day drew an average audience per minute of 408,000, and 280,000 for the week. More than 10 million viewers tuned in over the four-day period via Twitch, MLG, and Chinese streaming partners ZhanQi TV, NetEase CC, and Panda TV. On Twitch and MLG alone, the peak concurrent online audience of 437,000 hit during the day-one matchup between Dallas Fuel and Seoul Dynasty. In addition, tickets to Blizzard Arena Los Angeles were sold out for the entirety of opening week.

The first season of the Overwatch League runs until June, with playoffs and finals scheduled for July. For the inaugural season, all regular-season games will take place at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles.
