Overwatch League has partnered with the Comcast Corporation brand Xfinity to showcase its high-speed internet and other capabilities as its presenting sponsor.

Xfinity will have a presence on the Twitch and ESPN broadcasts, ABC’s grand finals broadcast and on-site at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Comcast also owns an Overwatch League franchise, the Philadelphia Fusion, so they’re no strangers to the esport.

Josh Cella, Activision Blizzard Esports head of global partnerships had this to say in a release: “Xfinity is a world-class brand, and we’re excited to have them be a major part of our 2019 Grand Finals. He added, "We worked in conjunction with Twitch to create a customised postseason opportunity for Xfinity, engaging fans experiencing the excitement of the finals both onsite as well as digitally. We are thrilled to have them sponsor the most exciting portion of our season, as they are committed to providing fast, safe, and reliable internet for all gamers.”

Matt Lederer, Comcast vice president of brand partnerships also had this to say: “We’re excited to be sponsoring the Overwatch League’s 2019 Grand Finals in our hometown of Philadelphia. We know the importance of a fast and reliable internet connection for online gaming, and we look forward to showing gamers and fans how the speed and capabilities of Xfinity Internet can maximise their esports experience.”

The Overwatch League 2019 playoffs will begin on August 30 in Los Angeles, with the grand finals on September 29. Twelve teams will compete for the total prize pool of $1.7 million, of which the winning team will take the lion’s share of $1.1 million.
