Registrations for the Football Championship (played on FIFA 18) and Call of Duty: WWII at AfrEsports September are now live.

This time around we will be hosting both 1v1 (FIFA) and free-for-all (COD), as well as 2v2 tournaments.

Securing your 'Early Bird' (online) pass before 28 August for the main tournaments will see you paying less than at the door.

We will be announcing some more tournaments in the coming days, so keep checking in.

The AfrEsports event is structured to welcome competitors of all skill levels, as well as those still finding their feet in the growing world of esports. This will be achieved via a number of secondary tournaments over the weekend aimed at those wanting to dip their toe into the competitive scene but who worry that only the ‘pros’ will be at the major tournaments.

A R50 Day Play Pass will be available at the door for those wanting to compete in a variety of smaller tournaments which will offer limited cash prize pools and products.

There is a free entry pass for those attendees only keen to spectate and support the event, its partners and vendors.
