The organisers of the Ekasi Tech Fest have announced a massive esports tournament for the 2019 event.
The tournament will take place at the Soweto Theatre on 28th June and there is a prize pool amounting to R10 000.
Regarding titles which will be played at the tournament, Ekasi Tech Fest has said that FIFA, Tekken and Counter Strike: Global Offensive are on the agenda.
From the press release we received it appears as if other titles will be included but as of time of writing it’s unclear what these titles will be, but the poster we’ve embedded below points to the possibility that Street Fighter might also be included.
“We are really excited to be a main sponsor at the Ekasi Tech Fest Esports Tournament this year. Our vision is to grow and educate the gaming community in South Africa. Working with Ekasi ESport really allows us to open the doors to many who are interested in entering the gaming arena,” AOC country manager for South Africa, Chris Barnes said in a statement.
Registrations for the tournament will be open from 4th March through the Ekasi Tech Fest website.
When we have more information we’ll be sure to share it with you.
