As is now tradition with the annual Electronics & Gaming Expo, Friday is school's day. That means cheaper entry for learners in school uniform, as well as some tournaments geared specifically for school goers.

Scholars in school uniform will be allowed full access to EGE for only R25 on Friday 27 July. The tickets will only be available at the door and the proceeds from these tickets will be given to charity.

For all scholars in attendance, there will also be a Fortnite, FIFA 18 and Injustice 2 tournament complete with cash prize pools. Up for grabs in each tournament will be R750 cash.

The FIFA 18 and Injustice 2 tournaments will start at 15h00 and will be single elimination. Participants can start registering from 14h30 at the venue. We will be capping entries per title at 32 players. You will only be allowed to participate in one of the titles.

The Fortnite will be ongoing from just after the expo opens and will be a King of the Hill tournament structure with players able to participate in a first-come-first-served basis.

For those keen try other titles, we will have stations available from the minute the expo starts with a number of adhoc mini-tournaments or challenges if we see a hunger and interest.

Please note that even as a scholar, you are more than welcome to participate in any of the weekend's tournaments on offer. You will however need to get a standard day pass for access on Saturday and Sunday.

So try and convince your teacher or headmaster that 27 July would be a great day for a field trip for the entire school. Then get everyone to EGE.
