After weeks of build up, Blizzard is set to kick off its inaugural pro Overwatch League season this afternoon — commemorating the start with skins for each team available in-game to all users.
Home-team skins are now available! Support the #OWL2018 team (or teams) of your choice.

The “home” team skin variants and free league tokens were first made available in-game on all Overwatch platforms yesterday. However, keep in mind that the 100 tokens — which are equivalent to one free skin purchase — will only be available to those who log in before February 13, as corrected by Blizzard in an official Overwatch League blog post. Aside from these gift tokens, additional tokens can only be obtained through in-game purchase. Prices are detailed below:
Time to suit up, heroes! Overwatch League home-team skins are now available in-game via the League Token system, which allows players to support the Overwatch League team (or teams!) of their choice. Home-team “jerseys” are now available for all 12 teams and all 26 Heroes.
Are you a Los Angeles Gladiators Reaper? A London Spitfire Tracer? Or a San Francisco Shock Zarya? (It’s all about that pink-on-orange color scheme.) The choices are endless.
To celebrate the launch of the league, each player who logs into Overwatch on PC, PlayStation, or Xbox One between now and February 13 will receive 100 free League Tokens—enough to get one Overwatch League team skin of your choice free. Each future team-skin purchase will require 100 League Tokens.
LEAGUE TOKENS WILL BE SOLD IN THE FOLLOWING DENOMINATIONS:
100 Tokens = USD $4.99*
200 Tokens = USD $9.99
400 Tokens = USD $19.99
900 Tokens = USD $39.99
2600 Tokens = USD $99.99
With today being Opening Day, three matchups are set to kick off the first season of what many hope to be a jolt for Overwatch in the competitive gaming community. The matches include the Los Angeles Valiant vs. San Francisco Shock, Shanghai Dragons vs. Los Angeles Gladiators, and the Dallas Fuel vs. Seoul Dynasty.
All Overwatch League matches can be seen live on Twitch. In addition, more information on schedule and teams can be found by downloading the official Overwatch League app on both IOS and Android devices,
