Over 10 MILLION Folks Watched the OW League's First Week of Games - MMORPG.com

To say that the Overwatch League is off to a great start is to underestimate the numbers that have been announced. Over the course of the first week of professional Overwatch action, over 10 million folks around the world watched matches. The highest concurrent number of viewers was nearly 500,000. 

“Since we announced Overwatch League at BlizzCon 2016, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the day when the global competitive Overwatch community could come together under one banner,” Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer said in a statement. “Opening week was that coming-out party—for the fans, both in-person at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles and tuned in by the millions all over the world, and for the players, whose love for the game came through crystal clear.”

You can read the full announcement here.
