The deal follows the end of Blizzard’s two year partnership with the Amazon-owned Twitch, who exclusively hosted the streams for the league since the 2018 season up until last December.
The first match of the 2020 Overwatch League season is between the Paris Eternal and the Toronto Defiant on February 8 in New York.
