Our Overwatch League guide contains the schedule and team list, and will be updated with results once the competition begins.

The second year of Overwatch League is due to get under way in just over a month from now, and to help you get prepared we wanted to put together a comprehensive guide to following the League in 2019.

In this article you'll find details of the overall format for year two of the competition, all of the teams who'll be featuring this time around (including eight newcomers to the roster) and a full schedule of the matches that have been announced so far.

Once Season 2 actually begins, we'll start adding in results - hidden with spoiler tags - along with details of standings over time. We'll also dig out match video where it's available so you can catch up on any of the biggest action you might have missed.
