The Philadelphia Fusion, Philly’s official Overwatch team, earned a ticket to the Overwatch League playoffs and will face the Boston Uprising next week in a match that’s already giving us Super Bowl flashbacks.

To rally the local fan base, the Fusion is hosting a Philly-style watch party at Xfinity Live! on July 11, featuring a live broadcast of the match, merchandise giveaways and an Overwatch gaming zone powered by N3rd Street Gamers. The match will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

(Pro tip: Scouts from Philadelphia Fusion’s academy team will be on site scoping out gamers for the the Overwatch Contenders League.)

“We were underestimated by many, but now we’re headed into the playoffs in the very first year of this incredible league, and our guys are hungry to bring big wins — and a championship — home to Philadelphia,” said Tucker Roberts, president of the Philadelphia Fusion, which is owned by Comcast Spectacor.
