The Electronics & Gaming Expo hits CTICC on 27 to 29 July and we will be bringing Fortnite to life over the weekend.

We will be hosting a variety of Fortnite events which include a limited entry 1v1 tournament with R2,500 cash up for grabs, a BYO LAN option and a variety of King of the Hill and challenge events. Should you want to compete in any of the Fortnite events, you will need at least an expo day pass for that day or a weekend pass.

1v1 FORTNITE CHALLENGE

On Saturday (28 July) we will be hosting two heats for competitors to play in. There is a 16-player cap per heat and each heat will offer a R1,000 cash prize pool. The top two players from each heat will return at 17h00 on Saturday to compete for another R500 cash up for grabs.

This tournament will be played on console with equipment supplied. The entire tournament will be played on the console stage, so competitors and spectators should report there on the day.

Players need to secure their spot via pre-registration but walk-ins will be allowed should there be spots available on the day.
