Gamers can win tickets to Rush

Enter and win tickets to this gaming extravaganza.

From the creators of the legendary rAge (really Awesome gaming expo) comes the next evolution in South African gaming – the dawn of Rush!

The inaugural Rush event, powered by HP Omen, is a first for eSports in South Africa and is set to become an annual showcase of everything that eSports has to offer. This unique event, running from 21 to 23 July, will offer aligned partners the opportunity to affiliate their brands with one of the world’s fastest-growing competitive spectacles.

Over the course of three days, Rush will feature a variety of competitive tournaments by leading local organisations hosted on dedicated eSports stages, with live shout casting (commentary) by some of South Africa’s top shout casters. South Africa’s top gamers and clans will compete for the honour of taking the top spots as well as some incredible prizes.

Perhaps the biggest draw for eSports is the spectator value. Fans and supporters will be able to watch the competitions live on big screens with dedicated seating areas at all the stages.

Five main stages have already been confirmed, showcasing popular titles such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fifa 17 and League of Legends. In addition, there’ll be a Street Fighter V tournament where casual as well as professional gamers can take part.

Games such as these, with their dedicated fan bases, will showcase the best local talent that eSports have to offer.

“Rush aims to provide a neutral and inclusive platform for all the local eSports organisations to host their respective events under one roof,” said Lauren Das Neves, marketing manager for Rush, Nag and rAge.

“We want to foster an environment that will not only benefit local tournament hosts but encourage new eSports talent, as well as provide a centre of activity where local eSports fans can gather to interact with and support their favourite teams and players. Rush is not another rAge, it’s something completely different.”

What else will you be able to do at Rush? Visitors will not only be able to see and experience all the eSports action live, they will also be able to meet their favourite players and teams as well as purchase merchandise, hardware products and accessories in the retail section. All this will take place at the Sandton Convention Centre.

Sandton Chronicle will be giving away 10 double tickets to this event.
