The top eight teams from each Regional Online Qualifier will then compete at the Regional Finals from October 14th – 21st, in which the winning teams from each respective region will receive their invitation, alongside one MSI sponsored team, to the Grand Finals, held at Gfinity Arena, London, United Kingdom from December 7th - 8th.

The Overwatch® MGA 2016 Championship Grand Finals will feature a $75,000 prize pool, with the victors taking home the $40,000 grand prize, while the second, third and fourth place teams will receive $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000 respectively.
