Fiesta Bowl goes from football to collegiate Overwatch

New partnership of Blizzard and Tespa with Fiesta Bowl—an organization that does an annual college football game in Arizona—is resulting in the biggest collegiate Overwatch championship.

The Fiesta Bowl Overwatch Collegiate National Championship is a first-of-its-kind partnership, according to Blizzard. The tournament will bring the top four collegiate Overwatch teams to Arizona for the semifinals and finals event.

“With the explosive growth of esports, we identified this opportunity to broaden our footprint and get involved right at our sweet spot—intercollegiate competition,” Fiesta Bowl executive director Mike Nealy said in a statement. “Partnering with Blizzard Entertainent once again puts us at the top of the college game, in a slightly different arena.”

Four teams out of 318 colleges have already advanced to the first Fiesta Bowl Overwatch Collegiate National Championship: University of California, Berkeley; University of Toronto; University of California, Irvine; and University of California, San Diego. Winners will receive scholarships—one for each player on the team.

The tournament will be held Feb. 17 at the Arizona State University campus. To kick things off, ASU and the University of Arizona will compete in an exhibition-style match.
