This weekend, the amazing medieval cathedral in the town center of Lucca, Italy, will be the main stage for our ESL Arena Overwatch: Champions tournament. As part of Italy’s most popular gaming convention, the Comics and Games fair in Lucca from the 28th October to November 1st, we will be hosting a number of great attraction in our ESL Arena, including 360° VR experiences, the chance to get your hands on new game releases and of course the opportunity to take part in our Overwatch: Champions tournament together with the pros.

Overwatch: Champions

From the 28th-30th of October, audience members will have the chance to be on the same team as some of world’s most acclaimed pros from teams such as Fnatic, FaZe, ANOX, EPOK Team and more. Each day, 40 fans will be part of a draft during which said pro players assemble their teams in the quest to win the daily tournament and become champions. We will crown three champions over the course of the three days, so don’t miss out on this opportunity and sign yourself up to the tournament, either at the venue in the mornings and or via our online form.

The entire event will be covered on international live streams in both Italian by H82 and English by Oneamongstmany and you can find the detailed Overwatch: Champions schedule and more on the official website.

More than 450,000 visitors came through the gates last year, so if you want to check out the ticket options, general event schedule and ESL Arena overview, be sure to head over to the official ESL Arena Lucca 2016 website, which will provide you with everything you need.
