Overwatch World Cup Qualifiers begin tomorrow, June 21, 2023, with the Indian team set to go all out against the best teams in Asia. The top 5 teams from the Qualifiers will make a run for the ultimate goal of winning the World Championship. The Overwatch World Cup in 2023 will be a successor to the one held in 2019.


As mentioned by Blizzard, the prize pool of the World Cup will be decided on the last day of the event as it will be crowd funded through in-game bundles and cosmetics. The main objective of the tournament is to unite the best teams across the globe and develop sportsmanship through respectful competition and rivalry.
