The Houston Outlaws are determined to win back their status as Texas’ #1 esports and Overwatch Team on July 9th and have lined up a July 8th and 9th series of broadcasts kicking off Thursday evening, July 8th and culminating with a LIVE WATCH PARTY on July 9th at the Outlaws’ favorite restaurant. Outlaws fans are being invited to tune-in to what is sure to be an all-out fight between these two regions within the Lone Star State.
The Battle for Texas kicks off Thursday evening, July 8th following the Outlaws league match against the Boston Uprising. Top players from the Outlaws community fan club —the Lone Star Vanguard will play Dallas’ community fan club—Fahrenheit 214. Then the collegiate competition begins between the two regions with The University of St Thomas’ Overwatch Team taking on The University of Texas-Dallas. Both matches will be streamed on the Outlaws YouTube and Twitch channels.
Following that, the festivities will culminate on Friday evening, July 9th when the Outlaws go head-to-head against the Fuel to improve their 1-2 standing this season against their arch nemesis. Sixty guests will be afforded an exclusive opportunity to watch the match LIVE at Herb & Beet (located at 448 Sawdust Road, The Woodlands, TX) hosted by the Outlaws staff and will be joined post-match by the entire team for a private Meet & Greet and conversation. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, June 16th at 9a.m. CT at outlaws.gg/battlefortexas, and will be limited to (60) studio audience fans at the price of $60. Tickets will include an Eat Like An Outlaw Dinner, giveaways from our sponsors, access to our pop-up merchandise store and a post-match conversation and autograph signing with the team. Guests must present proof of ticket and their vaccination card, in order to obtain admittance into the event. Doors will open at 3:30pm before the match and seating will be offered on a first come-first served basis.
“The Houston Outlaws are so excited to reintroduce LIVE EVENTS to our fans,” said Lori Burgess, COO of Beasley Esports. “We have a team that ranks amongst the best in the Overwatch League, and are proud to represent Houston and #OutlawsNation!”

“The rivalry between the Dallas Fuel and Houston Outlaws is very real,” cited Matt Iorio, GM for The Houston Outlaws. “This dates back to the earliest days of the Overwatch League and boasts some of the League’s most historic moments – like the very first homestand hosted in Dallas where our fanbase headed there in droves to support us. It heated up with the Outlaws winning the LoneStar Challenge last year and has only gotten fiercer this season with both teams dominating the league and fielding our most competitive rosters ever. We are excited to play the Dallas Fuel on July 9th and bring home another win for the #OutlawsNation!”
