2020 Overwatch League schedule released

The 2020 Overwatch League will see the twenty teams split across four Divisions, with each team hosting homestand games throughout the season.

There are now four Divisions, with the former Atlantic and Pacific Divisions split into two separate 'Conferences'. The teams in each Division have been confirmed and this has been done in order to allow for the home venue games to be viable and not result in endless team travel.

Each team will host at least two homestands as well as three regular-season events in their home territories at some point during the season. All regular-season matches are set to be played at the weekends with local markets being the deciding factor for timings of the games.

The 2020 season will not have the stages that we have seen in the previous two seasons, instead there will a continuous flow of matches every weekend. Teams will get weeks off at different times rather than strict breaks for all teams at once.

Florida Mayhem will be hosting their two homestand events at two universities in the state. The University of Miami's Watsco Center will host the first games 14-15th March, while the Full Sail Live Venue at Full Sail University in Orlando will get their Overwatch action May 16-17th.
