Firstly, the only way you can earn League Tokens for Overwatch League matches is by watching the matches on the official Overwatch League site, or through the Overwatch League app.

Within this there is a selection of countries that qualify for earning these Overwatch Tokens which are:

Argentina/New Zealand




Brazil/Saudi Arabia

Canada/South Korea






Mexico/United Kingdom

the Netherlands/United States

Your Blizzard account must have one of the following countries to get Overwatch League tokens. Here's how the rest works!

  • Earn five League Tokens for every hour spent on Overwatch League platforms viewing live matches.
  • Your viewing time is tracked continuously, so if you watch 30 minutes in one session and return later for another 30 minutes of viewing, you’ll get credit for that total accumulated hour.
  • Viewing time only accrues by watching live matches on the Overwatch League website (desktop and mobile), and on the Overwatch League mobile apps (iOS and Android).
  • League Tokens will be available in your Battle.net account after each completed hour of viewing.
  • League Tokens can be used on all Overwatch game platforms (i.e., PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch).

While earning these tokens, another important note is that to redeem Overwatch League tokens, you need to have a valid Overwatch game license otherwise you'll be unable to do so.

If you're still stuck on how to earn Overwatch League tokens, Overwatch League has an extensive video to bring you up to speed!
