This coming weekend at Afresports at GrandWest in Cape Town, we will be hosting Tekken 7 and Dota 2 (1v1) tournaments with cash prizes up for grabs.

There will be a standalone tournament for each title per day, with R1,200 in cash up for grabs per tournament. Entry will cost R50 per player per day. Each tournament will have a 32-player entry cap with a minimum of 16 players required per tournament to proceed. Pre-registrations are open with tickets available at the venue. Walk-ins will also be accepted - as long as there is space still. Players are also welcome to compete on both days but should note that the R50 fee is applicable per day.

The equipment for each of these events will be supplied. However, should Tekken 7 fighters want to use their own controllers, they may do so. For the Dota 2, PCs are being supplied by MWEB, while peripherals are being supplied by Cougar Gaming.

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.
