Upcoming Overwatch Contenders Finals set for Melbourne Esports Open

TEG and ESL have added the Overwatch Contenders Season 2 Finals to the growing roster of esports events due to take place at the upcoming inaugural Melbourne Esports Open.

The Overwatch Contenders Australia Season 2 Finals will be held on Saturday, 1 September, and will see 12 of the highest-performing teams across Australia and New Zealand battle for their share of a $67,000AUD prize pool.

The top four teams from the regular season will advance to the Melbourne Esports Open for the Season 2 Playoffs live on stage.

TEG CEO Geoff Jones welcomed the addition of the Overwatch Contenders Australia Season 2 Finals to the upcoming event.

The move comes just a day after TEG and ESL announced a partnership that will bring Riot's League of Legends Oceanic Pro League finals to Melbourne Esports Open.

“From the outset TEG had a vision of esports as major event live entertainment in world-class arenas with big crowds just as passionate and engaged as a major footy final,” said Jones.

“I am sure that the Melbourne Esports Open will live up to this billing in its debut year. Not only do we have an array of top pro teams and the most popular titles, but we have a magnificent precinct at Melbourne Park.

“The many esports activities for fans and the chance for anyone with the skills to compete and showcase their style in multiple esports titles in Margaret Court Arena cap off a fabulous esports entertainment schedule.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow Thursday 21 June at 2pm from ticketek.com.au. Prices start at $19.90 for juniors and $29.90 for adults. Family day passes start from $79.70.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
