Watch The Arena Championship and Earn a New Title!

October 2nd by Blizzard Entertainment

After battling their way through some intense qualifier cups, Europe’s top World of Warcraft Arena teams are ready to prove that they’re the best in the region. The Legion may have crashed into Azeroth since the last time they faced off, but these competitors will be ignoring the demon invasion in favor of PvP glory later this month.

The World of Warcraft Arena European Regional Championship will take place in Kiev, Ukraine from Friday, September 30 to Sunday, October 2. We’re heading to one of the biggest esports venues in Europe, the Kiev CyberSport Arena, where eight teams will fight for a share of $100,000 USD. And that’s not all—the top three teams will also qualify for the 2016 World of Warcraft Arena Championship at BlizzCon 2016, where they’ll take on the best players from around the globe.
