The Overwatch League announced it will hold its upcoming playoff event in Dallas and its grand final in Los Angeles.

The playoff event will take place at the Esports Stadium Arlington from Sept. 16-19, while the grand final will be held at the Galen Center on Sept. 25.

The Dallas Fuel recently held the first North American live event since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.

Also, the Overwatch League announced the top three teams in the West Region and best two in the East automatically will advance to the playoff bracket. The Fuel and Shanghai Dragons already have qualified to leave three spots remaining.

A play-in stage will allow the fourth through ninth seeds in the West and third through fifth seeds in the East to vie for the final three spots in the double-elimination bracket.

The winner of the grand final will pocket $1.5 million in prize money. The runner-up, in turn, will take home $750,000.
