What is an Overwatch World Cup competition committee?

Overwatch World Cup committees are responsible for hosting team tryouts in March. Each group also selects the country and regional team, according to Blizzard.

While the general manager role involves communications with Blizzard and team operations, coaches lead tryouts, the selection of players, plus the competitive duties of the team. As for the social leads, they are in charge of their team's engagement initiatives, content, and social media.

That's all for now. Stay tuned on Esports.gg for more news and updates!
