Hi Fellow Fools,

With the first seven teams for Overwatch on the books, ATVI just joined the BIGS:

Video-game titan Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) made headlines this week, when it announced the sale of the first seven teams for its Overwatch League to a broad cross-section of big league sports-team owners and veterans from the video-game industry. The New England Patriots' Robert Kraft and Jeff Wilpon of New York Mets fame are among the headliners for "the first major global professional esports league with city-based teams," according to the company's press release.

The first teams will take up residence in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Miami-Orlando, San Francisco, Shanghai, and Seoul. The rights to the Shanghai team were acquired by NetEase, Inc., a Chinese video-game producer, which also distributes Activision Blizzard games in China. The goal is to eventually build the league to 28 teams. Regular-season matches for the inaugural season will occur on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and take place at a Los Angeles-based esports arena, giving the local teams time to develop their venues.
