Everything you need to know about the Rush esports event in June


After the success of its first event last year, Rush is returning next month for another "electrifying" weekend of local gaming both in the competitive and casual scene. Best of all, the event will have a new home, the Sun Arena at Times Square in Pretoria. The venue is really cool if you have never been there before. Rush esports will host a range of competitive tournaments for casual gamers to enter as well as esports fans to just attend and watch. 

Vodacom 4U will be the main headline sponsor for Rush esports 2018 as they will host three tournaments across mobile, console and PC gaming. Yes, you read that right, mobile gaming too. These tournaments include;

  • Fortnite 1 vs 1 on mobile
  • FIFA 1 vs 1 on PS4
  • CS: GO 5 vs 5 on PC

You will be able to register for these tournaments starting Friday 1 June on the Rush esports site. Entrance to any of the tournaments is free for all competitors and tickets to the actual event can be bought from Computicket. 

The best part of Rush is how open it is to everyone. Many esports events are very closed off to the public by only allowing you to stream them. Rush is the exception. Anyone can come through, grab a ticket, a hotdog and spectate all the awesome gaming going on. There will also be stores and gaming brands on show too so you can get your hands on some powerful gear.
