3v3 Overwatch UGC Open Press Release



The Ultimate Gaming Championship (UGC) is excited to announce the first-ever Overwatch UGC Open – a live 3 vs. 3 elimination tournament played on the Xbox One. The event will be the first of it’s kind for the city of Mobile, Alabama, as players battle for a $5,000 prize pool at the Mobile Convention Center October 20th-22nd, 2017. The tournament will be featured during one of the Gulf Coast region’s largest multi-genre gaming and cosplay conventions, Quest-Con.

With support from Overwatch creators Blizzard Entertainment, the UGC’s 64+ team tournament is open to all competitors, professional or amatuer, from around the world. “This will be a great opportunity for players to showcase their skills in a title (Overwatch) that is rapidly growing,” said Everett Hicks, the UGC’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Overwatch is one of the, if not the, fastest growing eSports titles today! We are excited and proud to showcase this title in one of the first live Xbox One Overwatch events!”

Coming off of it’s $200,000 Gears of War Open Tournament in Atlantic City, which remains as one of the largest eSports events ever to be hosted in Atlantic City, the UGC is poised to once again make eSports history with Overwatch on the Xbox One. The Overwatch UGC Open will be streamed live on Twitch at twitch.tv/UGC. We will also be running side stations for titles such as Super Smash Brothers, Halo 5: Guardians and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered.
