ASTRO Gaming has announced the ASTRO Gaming Cup to celebrate the launch of their headsets and apparel in South Africa.

The ASTRO Gaming Cup will be an invitation only Black Ops 3 tournament hosted at the rAge expo in Cape Town from 18 to 20 March and will feature four (still to be revealed) teams from the local competitive console scene.

Expo attendees will be able to watch the matches live at the venue, while those not able to attend can catch all the action via the live stream. Visitors to the event will also be able to get some hands-on time with the “hottest headset in Africa.”

The four teams will face each other in a round robin phase followed by a single elimination leg to determine the winners prizes valued at R50,000.

Walter Duccini, Director of International Marketing for ASTRO Gaming had this to say about why they are keen to host the tournament: “After the recent launch of the ASTRO brand in South Africa, and the immediate warm reception by the community, we wanted to help give back by supporting some of the local gaming events. We are excited to help support both rAge expo, and the South African gaming community by helping to provide another local platform for competition.”

“It’s always very exciting for us to be hosting a competitive tournament at rAge. Companies like ASTRO Gaming supporting local teams can only be good for the continued growth of the local eSports industry and I look forward to seeing how this all plays out on the day.” Michael James, Senior Project Manager rAge EXPO.

The tournament will be operated by Zombiegamer in partnership with Clan Connection, and the two organisation’s representatives had this to say: “We are extremely excited to be running the very first Astro Gaming backed tournament in South Africa. ZombieGamer, in partnership with Clan Connection, is looking forward to putting together an event that showcases some of the best gaming talents in the country.”

Details of the teams and schedule will be revealed in the coming weeks.
