Spitfire will host two homestand weekend events in London next year, one from March 28th to 29th where they will face Paris Eternal and Toronto Defiant, and the other from June 6th to 7th, where they will take on North American teams San Francisco Shock and the Los Angeles Gladiators.

The specific match dates are as follows:

  • March 28: London Spitfire vs Paris Eternal
  • March 29: London Spitfire vs Toronto Defiant

“We have an awesome venue and plans in mind to ensure fans have an unforgettable experience at our events in London.”
Dan Fiden, president of London Spitfire.

 
These homestand series will look and operate in a similar capacity to the Dallas and Atlanta homestands that took place earlier this season.

The news comes after a new home and away format was announced for the 2020 Overwatch League season, with teams grouped into four regional divisions of five teams.

Each division will be part of either the Pacific or Atlantic Conference, with London making up part of the Northern division of the Atlantic Conference alongside Boston, New York, Paris and Toronto.
London Spitfire has held other events for UK fans in the past, having previously toured the country following their victory at the Grand Finals of the 2018 Overwatch League, plus a Gilded Gala fan event was hosted in London.

“We’re thrilled to host and compete in homestand events and perform in front of our incredible UK fanbase in the capital,” said Dan Fiden, president of London Spitfire.

“We have an awesome venue and plans in mind to ensure fans have an unforgettable experience at our events in London.”

London has hosted some top esports tournaments in recent years, including the FaceIT CSGO London Major, Dota 2 event ESL One Birmingham, the Rocket League World Championship finals at the Copperbox Arena and more.
Fans can purchase tickets for Overwatch League events from August 28th.
