Super League Gaming and ggCircuit are teaming up to make esports more accessible to a wider range of players.
They are forming an amateur tournament that will use the power of ggCircuits cloud-based server software. They want to enable more players to be able to participate in tournaments no matter where they are.
With the first step of the program, they will hold a squads “weekend showdown” that will start on Oct. 25. The showdown will feature $50,000 in prizes available across 5 key regions which include Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North America East, and North America West.
After that, they will then host weekly solo tournaments starting Oct. 28 called manic Mondays that will offer up to $10,000 each week. This will also be across the 5 key regions.
With this Fortnite league, players from around the world can go to their local ggCircuit gaming centers and compete for the weekly prize money.
“Super League’s mission began with the idea that competing in your favorite esport is more fun when you’re together with other gamers,” said Matt Edelman, chief commercial officer at Super League Gaming, in a statement. “This first-of-its-kind program marks the beginning of taking that mission worldwide and is just the start of our commitment to help build and support local gaming center communities from New York to Berlin to Dubai and beyond.”
