Sydney’s leg of the Overwatch World Cup will be partly broadcast on 7mate


Emphasis on "partly".

Australian free-to-air channel 7mate will air a portion of the Sydney leg of the Overwatch World Cup, it was today revealed.

A single match from this weekend’s event will be broadcast: Australia versus Sweden. The event will be broadcast live from 11.30 am AEST on Sunday, 23 July, ahead of the AFL’s Richmond versus GWS at 1.10 pm AEST.

The match will be hosted by 7mate’s new gaming show, screenPLAY.

Sydney’s portion of the Overwatch World Cup takes place over 21-23 July at The Star Event Centre in Sydney. Two placements in the World Cup Final, to be held at BlizzCon this November, are up for grabs.
