Posted 7th July 2018 By: Derpina    201 Views
Esports News – To commemorate the conclusion of the first-ever Overwatch League regular season and to celebrate the entry of the playoffs, the world’s best OWL team to date, New York Excelsior, plans to host a massive homecoming this July. As part of their post-season campaign, it will be an all-day fan event with celebrities, music, and a $10,000 fan tournament for all the residents in the city.
The homecoming event will celebrate New York Excelsior grabbing first place in the regular season. Moreover, the team also hopes to build up hype and gather fan support for their upcoming matches as they battle for the title of champion in the Overwatch League’s Inaugural Season. New York Excelsior will no longer be part of quarterfinals since they are automatically locked-in for the semi-final. They just have to win one more match to move onto the grand finals. For your reference, see the mechanics, schedules, and list of guests below.
The management created an official website for the event and its rules, mechanics, and updates. All information you need to know can be found at homecomingffa.splashthat.com. The NYXL Homecoming Qualifiers will be done online. Registrants must be able to provide proof that they reside within 75 miles of Manhattan. To register you must agree to the terms and conditions of the tournament, and provide your name, email, and zip code. Competitors under the age of 18 must provide consent from a parent or guardian to participate in the finals. Check-in for both qualifiers starts at 1 PM on the day of each competition.
