  • Earn five League Tokens for every hour spent on Overwatch League platforms viewing live matches.

  • Viewing time only accrues by watching live matches on the Overwatch League website (desktop and mobile), and on the Overwatch League mobile apps (iOS and Android).
  • League Tokens will be available in your account after each completed hour of viewing.
  • League Tokens can be used on all Overwatch game platforms (i.e., PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch).

  1. Create or log in to your Blizzard account on or in the Overwatch League app.
  2. View a live stream of a match during the promotion period.

To redeem League Tokens for in-game items, viewers must have a valid Overwatch game license. Xbox One, PlayStation4, or Nintendo Switch players must have their Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, or Nintendo account linked to their account. Follow these steps to do so. Additional terms and conditions apply.
