The Dallas Fuel, Houston Outlaws and Tegna TV are revealing “The Lone Star Showdown” which has brought on presenting sponsorship from Samsung and will feature Overwatch League exhibition matches and skill competitions. The two teams will play each other in a three weeks’ worth of action to try to determine the top team in the state.
Envy Gaming owner and CEO Mike Rufail said: “Texas is truly a hotbed for esports. Dallas was the first esports team to host a home match and now we’re teaming up with Houston for another esports first: launching a multi-platform, statewide challenge series. It’s only fitting that Texas would take esports rivalries to the next level.” The first episode will air Saturday, May 9th at 1:00pm ET.
