Due to the health and safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus outbreak in China, the Overwatch League has announced that after the cancelation of the homestand events in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou in February and March, makeup matches will be played in Seoul, South Korea.

According to the announcement, the matches will be played over multiple days in Weeks 6 and 7 at a studio in Seoul. As it stands, some of those makeup matches may be added to the Seoul Dynasty homestand in Week 5, but that has yet to be determined. However, at this time the makeup matches will not affect the other scheduled homestands in Washington (Week 5), Florida (Week 6), or Atlanta (Week 7).

The League has stated that it will reveal specific match dates and times at a later date.

Numerous esports events and tournaments in China such as the League of Legends Pro League, World Electronic Sports Games, CrossFire Pro League Grand Final, have been canceled or rescheduled to a later date because of health concerns related to the coronavirus.
