London Spitfire venues revealed for 2020 Overwatch League homestand games
Inaugural season Overwatch League champions, London Spitfire, have announced the venues for the team’s highly anticipated homestand matches for the upcoming 2020 season. The Overwatch team will play hosts at two iconic UK venues, with the first revealed as the SSE Arena, Wembley.

As part of a revamped 2020 season for the Overwatch League, London Spitfire will go head-to-head in a total of 28 matches around the world, including hosting two homestand series in London and Birmingham.

The homestand model has seen each team separated into four regional divisions of five teams.

The divisions are made up of the Pacific or Atlantic Conference, with the teams then being split between North, South, East and West Divisions, with London Spitfire part of the Northern division of the Atlantic Conference alongside Boston Uprising, New York Excelsior, Paris Eternal and Toronto Defiant.

The SSE Arena is no stranger to esports events. Half of FACEIT's ECS League Finals in CS:GO have taken place at the venue since 2016 as well as the 2018 FACEIT Major.

Fans will be able to attend matches on the 28-29th weekend as London Spitfire face Paris Eternal and Toronto Defiant.

An unannounced second homestand venue will be in the city of Birmingham. Having played host to ESL One Birmingham in 2018 and earlier this year, there is a clear appetite for esports outside of the UK capital.

With new OWL champions San Fransisco Shock and Los Angeles Gladiators coming to town for the Birmingham games between 6-7th June, those will be unmissable games for fans able to attend.
