The first group stage on Sept. 22 starts at 9am CT, with the final match scheduled for 6:45pm CT. It’s a long day for collegiate Overwatch players. Games will be streamed live on the OP Live Dallas Twitch channel starting at 1pm CT, according to the organizers.
The two-day event at the Irving Convention Center will also feature tournaments and events in Fortnite, as well as meet-and-greets and panel events with players and representatives from Team Envy and Dallas Fuel.
