This weekend is a smorgasbord of local esports action with both Rush and the Ekasi Tech Fest on the go.

Today however we’ve got an update from the latter which has welcomed a new partner at the eleventh hour – Redragon.

Redragon offers up PC and console peripherals at an affordable price. I happen to be writing this story on a Redragon keyboard and honestly I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

As part of its sponsorship, Redragon has kitted out the Ekasi Tech Fest’s Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournament with peripherals and gaming chairs. Attendees will also have the chance to win some Redragon product during the event.

“We are thrilled to launch our event with great partners such as Redragon,” member of the Ekasi Tech Fest organising committee, Mpho Tladi said in a statement.

In addition to the event, players playing under the Ekasi Esports banner will receive Redragon peripherals and gaming chairs.

The Ekasi Tech Fest takes place on 28th and 29th June at the Soweto Theatre. Tickets cost R80 for a day pass, R150 for a two-day pass and if you want to take part in the FIFA 19, Tekken 7 or Street Fighter V tournaments that will cost you R250.

Tickets are available online or at Pick n Pay outlets throughout South Africa.
