Overwatch Festival (#OWFestZA) announced, a competition for everyone
 
Press Release 09 February 2017 – We at ACGL are extremely excited to announce the Overwatch Festival in collaboration with MWEB GameZone, SteelSeries and KontrolFreek. 
The event will consist of five tournaments for each participating platform (PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4) over a three week period – 15 February 2017 to 1 March 2017.
Traditionally, tournaments for Overwatch have been hosted as 6-a-side events. We at ACGL would like to break the mould and kick off with something more accommodating to the community by breaking that extensive barrier for entry. Thus, we are very excited to announce that all the Overwatch Festival tournaments will consist of solely 1v1 and 3v3 Single Elimination tournaments.
We would like to thank all the sponsors that have got involved in backing the event. Here is what they had to say regarding the Overwatch Festival.
“MWEB GameZone is excited to be part of the Overwatch Festival with ACGL. We are positive that this event will contribute to growing the Overwatch and gaming community, in South Africa. We look forward to more Overwatch events, like this, in the near future” – Derrick Kaylor Product Manager of New Services at MWEB GameZone.
“eSport in South Africa is hungry for development in all genres. The 1v1 and 3v3 concept in Overwatch helps involve those players not yet part of a full team and gives them a taste of the competitive field in South Africa. With this in mind, we felt it was a great concept to get involved with alongside ACGL again and in an active tournament that has a fresh and new dynamic for the community.” – Alan Spohr SteelSeries and KontrolFreek Brand Manager for Megarom Interactive.
