We are pretty excited to announce our Fortnite Festival at Afresports, and in doing so, we reveal that it will be the first custom lobby event for the title in Africa.

On 1 and 2 September 2018 at GrandWest in Cape Town, 64 PlayStation 4 competitors and 64 PC competitors will compete at once on their chosen platform for their share of R20,000 in cash.

This Fortnite Festival is possible thanks to MWEB and Internet Solutions who will be supplying the internet connection needed to ensure all players in attendance can enjoy their experience.

Cougar Gaming South Africa are also joining the action over the weekend with their peripherals, chairs and support helping make Afresports happen.

Over the two days of AfrEsports, we will be hosting both 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments on PlayStation 4 and PC. All the events will be bring-your-own and will feature a cash prize pool of R20,000. There is an entry fee being charged. Competitors can register for their spot at the event here:

Fortnite is not the only tournament event and activity happening over the weekend. Call of Duty, FIFA 18 and more will be featured with a variety of tournament types welcoming both seasoned campaigners and new players. Cash prizes and products are on the line across a variety of titles.

Spectators and those keen to shop at the vendors can access the event for free. There will also be opportunities to try out Fortnite and other titles, as well as compete in a fastest lap competition.

Full details and registration links can be found on the Fortnite Festival landing page.

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.
