For the first time in the history of MSI’s annual international esports tournament, the Masters Gaming Arena (MGA) Championship will hold its Grand Finals in London, as MSI brings an Overwatch event to the Gfinity Arena.
The Overwatch MGA 2016 Championship, presented by MSI, will have a stacked talent pool to complement the high level of competition taking place in the English capital. Featuring some of the best known hosts, analysts and commentators in the Overwatch scene, the talent lineup consists of Soe ‘Soembie‘ Gschwind-Penski, Mitch ‘UberShouts‘ Leslie, Andrew ‘ZP‘ Rush, Josh ‘Sideshow‘ Wilkinson and Robert ‘Hexagrams‘ Kirkbride.
Competing for the top prize of $40,000 (£32,163) will be winners of their respective Regional Finals. These are Rise Nation, Ninjas in Pyjamas and KongDoo Panthera – who will be joined by invited guest team Fnatic. There is a total of $75,000 (£60,306) up for grabs with $20,000 (£16,081) for second place, $10,000 (£8,041) for third and $5,000 (£4,020) for fourth.
Esports Insider says: Another big money event finals come to London and fans of Overwatch in the UK should get themselves down to the Gfinity arena for an early Christmas present on December 7th and 8th.
