The first day of the highly anticipated Overwatch League was a roaring success in terms of viewership on the Twitch streaming platform. The deal, announced earlier today, is believed to be the biggest exclusive distribution deal in esports history. That deal is exclusive on joint tech-development and commercialization, not competition coverage. Twitch will show every regular-season and postseason contest for OWL, which starts play tomorrow night, and develop reward programs and new virtual merchandise for viewers. People from all over the globe can now watch the matches between their favorite teams as they unfold from Twitch.

With the Overwatch League being broadcast at times that will make it virtually impossible for European fans to watch live, Blizzard and Twitch can expect to see these figures soar even higher with VOD spectators.

The Valiant will face the San Francisco Shock in the opening match, set to begin at 4 p.m., while the Gladiators will face the Shanghai Dragons at 6 p.m.in the second match. Dynasty met their match as they clashed against the Dallas Fuel.

Sevilla To Report Manchester United To UEFA Over Ticket Price Increase
Sevilla and Manchester United have engaged in a war of words over tickets after the English club hiked up their prices to match what their own fans must pay in Spain .

The new skins can be bought within the Overwatch game by using the new in-game currency - League tokens, which will enable you to support your favourite teams during the season. London Spitfire's strip is the nicest, naturally, maybe followed by Florida Mayhem's - tonight's match should be easy on the eye, then!

Players will be able to get the home-team jerseys for all 12 of the teams competing in the Overwatch League.
