The Heroes of the Storm Global Championship (HGC) is the premier competitive league for Heroes of the Storm. Top professional teams from North America, Europe, Korea, and China battle for supremacy in regional league play and elite international tournaments.
During each phase of league play, every team will play every other team in the region twice. Win/loss records will determine placement in Clashes and the Mid-Season Brawl (Phase 1) or HGC Finals (Phase 2).
League play matches are best-of-five. Match days are scheduled for primetime viewing in each region. North America, Europe and Korea play on a Friday/Saturday/Sunday schedule.
