UPDATE | You are invited to the Halo world championship SA viewing party

In November last year, Xbox announced the $1.5 million Halo World Championship, with Africa included as one of the 16 teams invited. South Africa was grouped together with Europe and the Middle East (EMEA), and so the battle began to determine which team from South Africa would take on their counterparts for a shot at that $1.5 million prize pool - it's grown to $1.7 million and still counting!


We received the following sad news  from Xbox South Africa:

"We have had to cancel the Halo viewing party due to unforeseen circumstances. We will however be hosting a similar party in the coming months and will keep you updated on the new timing."

There was no further explanation, sad news indeed. I hope you'll still support ViNCO by watching the live stream on ESL Twitch.

Update ends.

Earlier this month SA's final eight Halo teams battled it for the chance to head to Europe for an all expenses paid trip and the EMEA finals. ViNCO Gaming took the win and will head to Germany Cologne where they'll compete against Team Infused (UK), and Vitality (EU). Xbox South Africa invites you to join them in support of ViNCO this coming Saturday at the live viewing party.

There will be pizza, giveaways and a gathering of gamers - all cheering for SA's ViNCO.

  • When: Saturday 6 February
  • Time: From 12 pm to 6 pm.
  • Where: Microsoft SA, 3012 William Nicol Drive; Bryanston; Johannesburg
  • Entry: Free but full of cheer for ViNCO!
  • Map: Find the map and more details here

"We'll be live streaming the event, as well as have a great Halo 5 set-up for you to play against other fans all day. Add in some pizza and giveaways, and you really can't afford to miss out," says Xbox South Africa. Their partners for the event include Megarom Interactive and AlwaysOn WiFi.
