This year at SXSW Gaming 2019 ESPN‘s Mina Kimes interviewed Featured Speaker Nate Nanzer, Commissioner of the Overwatch League, about the critical success the Overwatch League achieved in its inaugural season as a first-of-its-kind, city-based esports league and the lessons learned throughout the process.
In his featured session, Nanzer and Kimes discussed how the home/away format is a major priority for the long-term future of the Overwatch League and announced exclusively at SXSW Gaming that the Overwatch League had definite plans to move to home city competitions for the 20 teams in 2020.
“[The Overwatch League has] a lot of momentum right now as the audience grows and there are no signs of a sophomore slump.” – Nate Nanzer, Overwatch League Commissioner
